and best practice in Occupational Health & Safety
Last year in Great Britain, 228 workers lost their lives as a result of a workplace accident. A further 28,000 workers suffered major injuries in the form of broken limbs, amputations and serious burns. Over 2 million people have illnesses that were either caused or made worse by work.*
That's 35 million working days lost.
Anyone responsible for Health & Safety can be the first to learn about new standards in Occupational Health & Safety (OH&S) and about strategy developments from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) – to protect their employees, and to protect their company.
Occupational Health & Safety
Update on Standards, Strategy, Regulation and Best Practice
9-10 December 2008
Manchester United FC, Manchester
Now in its second year, this conference and accompanying workshop will help delegates move ahead with health and safety challenges in their organization.
Keynote speaker Judith Hackitt CBE, Chair of the HSE, will explain the Executive's latest strategy and how this will impact on OH&S strategy.
She will be joined by speakers from the Association of British Insurers, iMS Risk Solutions and Reynolds Porter Chamberlain LLP, among others.
Core session themes will cover:
Updates on developments in legislation and regulation
How to successfully implement BS OHSAS 80001 Occupational health and safety management systems. Requirements
Likely effects of the Corporate Manslaughter Act.
Additionally, following the publication of BS OHSAS 18001 last year, further guidance standards are due to publish shortly. This conference provides a comprehensive briefing on what the forthcoming BS OHSAS 18002 and BS 18004 (previously BS 8800) cover, and what they mean for UK businesses.
David Smith, Director of iMS Risk Solutions and Chair of BSI's OH&S management systems committee, will lead the post-conference workshop on achieving effective OH&S performance, and the benefits this brings to businesses. Attendees will receive practical guidance on implementing the new British Standards, and learn how to effectively integrate health and safety management into their existing risk management systems.
Health and safety of employees is of relevance to all companies, particularly as health, rather than safety issues, rise up the agenda, alongside the growth in services.
This conference will be useful to all those responsible for Health & Safety in their organization at an operational and strategic level. This includes: OH&S directors, managers and consultants; facilities managers; risk and compliance officers; quality managers; and HR personnel.
Attend this conference for the latest thinking on major problems faced by OH&S managers and how businesses are finding solutions. The conference fee also includes an optional stadium tour of Manchester United FC – but places are limited.
