Patrick will present on European silica regulations, while Mohamed will discuss the role of telematics, digital and remote control in a safe demolition environment.

The experienced duo take the number of confirmed speakers to four, following the earlier announcements of project presentations by Joe Brinkmann, managing director of South African contractor Jet Demolition, and his counterpart at Safedem in Scotland, William Sinclair.

As well as his involvement with the EDA and the European Decontamination Institute (EDI), Patrick is business development manager of the European organisation of remediation, surface preparation and decontamination specialist Blastrac. Based in France, he has been part of several consultations on asbestos, nuclear, lead paint and silica dust, and has presented many times at seminars across Europe about silica related issues.
