“The changing health and safety landscape”

13 Apr

The British Safety Council is putting the final touches to the programme for its conference, “The changing health and safety landscape”, taking place in London on 6 July. The conference will explore three main themes : the likely impact of the government’s plans for health and safety reform; an update of developments concerning health and safety law including implications of those developments for directors and senior managers, and; the likely implications for our member organisations of HSE budget reductions and the planned changes in HSE’s and local authority inspection priorities.

The conference, which will be held at the CBI’s Centre Point offices, will be structured to ensure that those attending have the opportunity to pose questions, concerns and share their experiences surrounding the challenges the management of health and safety poses for their respective organisations.  We have invited Professor Ragnar Löfstedt, who is leading the government’s review of our health and safety regulatory framework, to deliver the keynote presentation.  Confirmed speakers include : Steve Pointer, Director of Health and Safety EEF, Dan Shears, Health & Safety Adviser GMB union, Mark Tyler, Partner & Solicitor Shook, Hardy & Bacon ILLP, Louis Wustemann, Editor Health and Safety at Work and Lynda Armstrong, Chairman of the British Safety Council.  A number of our 2011 International Safety Award distinction winners will be contributing to the round table discussions.

Full programme and registration arrangements will appear on the Events pages of the British Safety Council website shortly.
