Finding a way to press on with accident and ill health prevention during difficult economic times is the theme this year of Scotland’s foremost safety event. In 2009-10 there were 23 worker fatalities, 2,548 reported major injuries to employees, and 7,992 over three day injuries to employees reported in Scotland.
Delegates at the forum will explore current and future health and safety issues in the wider context of budget cuts by getting involved with interactive workshops, discussion groups, and panel interviews — learning from each other as well as experts.
Chaired by Tom Mullarkey, RoSPA's chief executive, the conference is expected to attract a range of top safety stakeholders, including company directors, senior managers, health and safety advisers, and human resource professionals.
The event opens with a panel of experts taking part in a discussion entitled “A Day in the Life of Health and Safety: Overcoming Your Operational Challenges,” expected to provide solutions to real issues raised by delegates.
A variety of workshops covering safety leadership, communication, and health and wellbeing will take place, with plenty of top tips and practical advice given by prominent Scottish health and safety professionals.(WcxKit)
Two case studies will enable delegates to take away practical advice from the real world of business. One focuses on finding opportunities amid budget cuts. The second reviews a genuine accident autopsy, looking at how it happened, and what it really cost.
