About this event

Ian will talk about how Reservoirs provide a vital service in storing the country's water, but the consequences of failure are truly terrifying. Managing safety remains a major business risk for all reservoir owners.

The unprecedented flooding of the summer of 2007 brought reservoir safety into sharp focus and has led to regulatory change that will have a major impact on all dam owners.

His career spans 41 years in the Water Industry and past roles include Head of Reservoir Safety Regulation at the Environment Agency. He is currently the Dams and Reservoirs Manager for Severn Trent Water.

The talk will cover the identification, assessment and management of business risks, the delivery and the application of a new visual management system for dams and reservoirs.
