The key to communication – National Safety Symposium, September

If it’s practical, straightforward hints and tips you need on health and safety best practice, then the National Safety Symposium is the place to be.

If it’s practical, straightforward hints and tips you need on health and safety best practice, then the National Safety Symposium is the place to be.

This year’s symposium is on the theme of ‘Communicating safety in today’s workplace’. Taking place at the Holiday Inn, in Leicester, on 4-5 September, the symposium brings together health and safety practitioners and managers from public and private sector organisations. The symposium has over 20 speakers covering hot topics from slips and trips to communicating health and safety.

Bruce Phillips, chairman of the NSS 06 Working Party, said: “Communication in the workplace is all important. Without communicating it’s impossible to get safety messages across. The more effective practitioners are at expressing themselves, the higher safety standards are likely to be.

“This is the 31st symposium, and it’s bound to be a cracker. While communication is the core topic, there are plenty of other subjects, such as occupational health, building a business case and slips and trips, to challenge and motivate delegates.”

The speaker line up includes:

– Peter McCabe, director of manpower education safety at the Construction Industry Federation (CIF) on ‘integration of migrant workers’;

– Simon Ancliffe, managing director of Evacuation Strategies on ‘communication and evacuation’;

– Marilyn Macfarlane, national learning health and safety manager at the Learning and Skills Council covering its ‘Safe learner’ initiative;

– Robert King, Woodland Grange’s director of health, safety and environment training and consultancy, on ‘striking the bargain on health and safety’.

Full conference tickets cost £375 + VAT. A one-day symposium ticket costs £175 + VAT while a half-day costs £95 + VAT. To make your booking please call the events team on 0116 257 3231 or email [email protected] or visit www.iosh.co.uk/events to get a copy of the full programme.
