Offering a free seminar programme, free exhibition and free parking, Health and Safety '10 - North enables people at all levels to find the latest in health and safety information, products, services and consultancy all under one roof.
One of the main attractions is the free conference and seminar programme which includes sessions organised by the event's official educational partner, the British Safety Council (BSC). The seminar topics included have been specifically chosen by BSC to provide maximum benefit to the visitor, and this includes a new seminar presented by Kevin Bridges and Zoe Betts from Pinsent Masons LLP giving a health and safety law update entitled: 'The significance of setting the right tone at the top'.
The seminar aims to provide the audience with an insight into new risks facing businesses due to developments in health and safety law in recent years, including Corporate Manslaughter (new sentencing guidelines, personal liability of directors and senior management) emphasising the significance of setting the right tone at the top of the organisation and giving some simple legal preventative measures organisations can take as part of an incident response protocol.
Mark Thomas, policy advisor of the HSE's Slips, Trips and Falls team will give a presentation on: 'Slips and Trips: Can the problem be solved? Some success stories'. It will cover how to tackle slips and trips in the workplace, outline key issues that contribute to accidents, describe HSE action in these areas and detail available guidance. It will also give some case studies from a variety of sectors that have had success in reducing the number of accidents.
Stress, depression, and anxiety in the workplace are now commonplace in many organisations and are a major issue both for employers and employees alike. Statistics from the HSE show that around 11,420 working days were lost during 2008/09 due to these illnesses, causing a great deal of cost to employers and to the health of employees.
Knowing where to begin to encourage the health and wellbeing of employees is difficult as it is an extremely complex issue; however, Health and Safety '10 - North, can help to provide you and your company with a benchmark for corporate wellness.
