As the current Health and Safety reform agenda gathers pace, an update on progress including the implementation of the Löfstedt report and the early experiences of Fee for Intervention (FFI) will be highlighted at Health & Safety South, taking place on 12 – 13th March at Sandown Park Racecourse, Esher.
Visitors to the event will also have the opportunity to join a unique debate on Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) face fit testing, thanks to the new “Safety Dialogue’ Live Panel.
Outlining some of the most important developments in the safety sector and opening the free conference program ( organised in conjunction with the British Safety Council) will be a presentation entitled ‘Current Developments on the Reform Agenda’. Delivered by Philip White, Chief Inspector of the Construction Division, HSE, the presentation will also make particular reference to the current health and safety challenges in the construction industry, including the proposed revision of the CDM Regulatory package and HSE's future priorities for the industry.
Something new for this year’s event is the “Safety Dialogue’ Live Panel which will take place on both days of the event. The panel offers visitors the opportunity to engage with live debates surrounding the most significant issues of the day, and this year the panel of experts will focus on the issues surrounding Respiratory Protective Equipment (RPE) and specifically Face Fit testing for masks. The panel includes recognised experts such as Frank Angear of the British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF) and Alan McArthur of 3M Safety Solutions.
Additionally, Health Risks at Work and their Champions Workshop will also be running throughout the 2-day event. This workshop will form part of the ‘Safety Dialogue’ space and will give visitors the chance to expand their knowledge, network with their local Safety Groups and also give them the opportunity to volunteer to become a Health Risks at Work Champion.
As well as the British Safety Council conference program there are other, more practical, seminars taking place across the two days. Visitors will be able to see vendors and event partners such as 3M host practical seminars. 3M has two seminars, the first focuses on ‘PPE Compatibility’
The full timetable of the conference programme for the 2-day event is now up on the event website.
