Attend and Gain Practical Insights Into: The science of earthing: The codes of practice that govern the installation and maintenance of safety earthing and lightning protection systems in south Africa today. Code requirements to implement correct complaint earthing systems: Different earthing systems, principal design considerations and methods for earthing of lighting protection systems: Methods to protect: personnel plant and equipment during an earth fault or lightning strike. Gain a new understanding of information required to design, install, test, and maintain correct earthing and lightning protection systems according to the SANS codes practise.
A laboratory is a critical part of many organizations; it's a place where innovations and new findings occur every day. Operating a laboratory requires a great deal of foresight, planning and a concise business strategy. Deadlines are critical, time to market imperative and mistakes unacceptable, the smooth running of laboratories is of top importance within the organizations. Technological advancements enable laboratories to operate faster, and to catalogue and manage data more effectively, producing increased expectations. Lab managers are in search of solutions to keep up with the demand to deliver new and enhanced products in record time. All laboratories need to have sound business processes to enable them to deliver technically sound calibrations and tests. This conference has the methodology and practical means of meeting these demands with three important objectives: Quality Management Laboratory Productivity Laboratory Safety
Lab managers, aided by the recent economic climate, have seen their roles expand beyond science in order to ensure that the lab is a strategic entity that runs like a business. They are charged with implementing strategic decisions to drive lab productivity and manage costs, particularly as they relate to the lab’s major capital assets: laboratory instruments.
The greater interest in capital assets correlates with a greater interest by procurement in how lab managers justify decisions regarding assets. The Laboratory Leadership ,instrument and materials management workshop will help Laboratory managers have Quantifiable data which is key, and be aware that data increasingly needs to be insightful. It’s not only how many instruments you have but also how they are being utilized and keeping track of service, the compliance program and overall cost.
Laboratories have a professional obligation to provide accurate and reliable analytical results to customers. The Laboratory should justify the customer’s trust by providing the correct answer to the analytical part of the problem, in other words, results that have demonstrable ‘fitness for purpose’ Analytical method validation is one of the measures universally recognised by laboratories as a necessity for a comprehensive system of quality assurance. Reliable analytical results are required for compliance with international regulations in almost all areas of analysis. Method validation is an essential component of the measure that laboratories should employ to ensure that they produce accurate and reliable results, hence ensuring business continuity.
