  • Progress achieved in development, design and manufacture;
  • devices and equipment to prevent malfunctions and accidents;
  • measures taken by operators for operation, control and maintenance;
  • Activities of the supervisory authorities in the preparation of standards and the supervi-sion of installations;
  • organisation and implementation in the event of passenger rescue;
  • specific statistics demonstrating the very high level of safety 15 speakers will present the seminar in the form of a dynamic presentation "talk show" moderated by Nicolas Perretta.
