Health & Safety workshop
SafeStart’s latest discovery workshop
SafeStart will host its latest workshop on 14 May ahead of speaking at Safety & Health Expo on 19 June 2019.
SafeStart’s latest workshop aims to combat the balance and conflict between production and safety by addressing key workplace stress issues including human error, lack of engagement and fatigue. Unintentional mistakes are common in the workplace, the workshop will train attendees with the skills and awareness to avoid them so that it does not lead to injury. Development Director, David Hughes, expressed that “error is normal, even the best people make mistakes. But we can all learn to make fewer of them”.
It costs the UK £114-£240 million per year in regard to fatigue that leads to workplace accidents which every manager encounters therefore is an ideal workshop for health and safety leaders, HR managers and operations.
The workshop will be hosted in Leeds at The Queen’s Hotel, City Square on 14 May running from 8:30-13:00. Visitors will need to register to attend.

His perseverance, courage and hard-work in the face of insurmountable odds provides a universal lesson. There is always the risk of failing when you’re trying something new. And in the case of Eddie, his ambitions also put him at risk of severe injury. Eddie will be joined on stage by Larry Wilson, CEO and author of Safestart UK.
