Salford Professional Development’s annual Health and Safety conference has rapidly become one of the leading conferences in the industry, with last year’s conference attracting over 250 professionals across multiple sectors. The event will focus on how the global pandemic has created new unforeseen challenges, pushing health & safety further up the national agenda.
As guidelines evolve to reflect the preventive needs of the crisis- how have health & safety professionals dealt with the increased demands placed upon them? What key lessons have been learnt? And how has this changed our collective perception of health & safety?
The conference will feature prominent speakers from a range of different sectors to discuss the common challenges in creating a healthier and safer workplace. Covering topics ranging from fighting the infection, to the ongoing awareness and training required for high-risk hazards.
The movement towards increased occupational safety and health at work has transformed the role of employer. With so many changes to our understanding of the workplace, with an estimated 46.6% of people working from home (April 2020), understanding and protecting the wellbeing of staff has never been more important. From this event, you will come out with solutions to challenges you are facing in achieving a safer and healthier workplace.
Join us and discover a wealth of information to assist with better understanding your organisation’s health & safety needs.
