A Good Morning to Avoid Slip-ups in Manchester

30 January 2015 | Updated 01 January 1970

The British Safety Council has arranged a morning event in Manchester in February to show how to keep up with the latest health, safety and environmental matters.

The morning seminar is on Thursday, 26 February 2015 at Manchester City F.C.’s Etihad Stadium with key speakers addressing a range of current health, safety and environmental topics affecting business and industry.

The event organised by the British Safety Council will run from 08.30 – 12.30 with a networking lunch afterwards. It will focus on specific areas within the health and safety at work agenda – areas that remain of concern such as slips, trips and falls and maintaining an attitude of safety – as well as the more recent debate on how managing occupational health risks is as important as preventing workplace injuries.

There will also be updates on the Health and Safety Executive’s Fee for Intervention scheme, which recovers enforcement costs from employers found in breach of health and safety law, and the Sentencing Council’s proposed new guidelines, which could see large organisations fined as much as £10 million for the most serious health and safety offences.

The morning’s event will consist of presentations and a panel discussion, and the price per person is £95.00 + VAT for British Safety Council members, £125.00 + VAT for non-members.
