Loss Prevention Asia 2019


LOSS PREVENTION ASIA (LPA 2019) is an inaugural conference organised by Centre of Advanced Process Safety (CAPS), Universiti Teknologi PETRONAS (UTP). It is an excellent platform for knowledge sharing, intellectual discussions and also networking on various area of interest in Process Safety. This year, the theme “Building Resilience through Advanced Digital Safety and Technology” is to discuss the advancement of technology through the digitalisation of process safety and integration of data analytics on future trends in managing process safety, in the advent of the Fourth Industrial Revolution.


Most catastrophic incidents caused businesses and organizations with major losses and may end up shutting down operations. Advancement in predictive technology through the integration and digitalization of process data and safety would greatly assist the CEOs, plant managers, operators, and engineers in decision making within a timely manner; thus avoiding catastrophic incidents from occurring. As a result of effective system and management, the organizations would become resilient towards any incident that might affect performance.
LOSS PREVENTION ASIA 2019 will host panel discussions and keynote speakers by internationally well-known speakers that will thoroughly discuss ideas from the perspective of policymakers, law enforcers, industry practitioners, and institutions regarding loss prevention. Thus, join us together with many experts from around the world in building resilience and a safer working environment.
