Risk & safety conference offers expert advice

Published:  20 February, 2015

The Health and Safety Event says its forthcoming conference programme between 24-26th March, which is independently authored by IIRSM, will cover the latest risk and safety issues across a wide range of industries, presented by recognised experts.

One seminar on offer during the event - ‘Developing a risk management programme’ - builds a bridge between Enterprise Risk Management (ERM) and Occupational Safety and Health, which on the surface are two worlds that are diametrically opposed. Emma Cundiff, director at Peritis Limited, a speciality management consultancy and training company, who will deliver the seminar says she believes that the skills used in the two disciplines are similar and therefore the two worlds have synergies that it is advantageous to explore. Alongside Cundiff’s belief, there is also very real movement in the market whereby those with responsibility for safety and health are having other, aligned responsibilities ‘tagged on’ to their role. Among these are ‘the environment’ and increasingly ‘risk management’.

As well as its role in the conference both the IIRSM and the BOHS will take leading roles in the other educational activities taking place at the event, including providing panellists for the ‘Safety Dialogue’ discussions. ‘Safety Dialogue’ is a round table discussion involving a live panel during which experts discuss the latest issues and open up the floor to questions from the audience.

Other free educational activities that take place include practical seminars from the event’s partners and the newly introduced ‘Safer Logistics Seminar Theatre’ and ‘Feature Area’, which promises visitors a wealth of education and advice tackling safety hot spots in warehousing and logistics.
