Do you have any Large or Working objects at your museum or centre? Then this is your chance to hear about the updated Guidelines on the Care and Operation of such objects. The seminar will feature the keynote speaker Tim Bryan – Director of the National Motor Museum and Chair of the Association of British Transport and Engineering Museums (ABTEM). ABTEM spearheaded a project to bring these nationally important guidelines up to date, reflecting both changes in requirements and standards as well as best practice developments.
This Seminar is brought to you courtesy of the Heritage Engineering Network supported by SHARE – it is not just for members of the network but for anyone with an interest or responsibility for large and working equipment, be it a railway locomotive, pumping station, bus collection or farm machinery to name but a few, because the Guidelines cover the entire spectrum of working equipment and large objects.
Following the keynote speech and using the Guidelines as a structure, there will be ample opportunities for questions about the care and operation of your objects and how the Guidelines might benefit small owning groups or friends groups looking to take on a project. The day will provide opportunities to discuss your issues not just with the speaker and colleagues with knowledge of the Guidelines, but also fellow attendees about the challenges of ownership and operation they face.
This will be the only regional presentation of the ABTEM guidelines so book your place today as we are limited to 45 delegates, therefore we respectfully ask for only two representatives of each organisation in order to share the learning across the region.
The seminar is free for all attendees, doors open with refreshments from 10.00 and lunch will be provided. If there is sufficient demand we will look at holding a repeat at a later date.
Bookings are closed for this event.
