Conference programme announced for Health & Safety Scotland 2015

Health & Safety ScotlandHealth & Safety Scotland offers visitors the chance to keep up to date with the latest legal issues and trends through its conference programme, which is authored by the British Safety Council. The event takes place at Glasgow’s SECC on 22nd – 23rd April 2015.

Forming part of the conference programme and demonstrating some of the latest thinking such as looking at the role of the individual in setting an organisation’s risk safety culture is Tim Marsh, Managing Director at Ryder Marsh Safety Limited, with his seminar entitled ‘The Person in Safety Culture’. The seminar will argue that once ‘diminishing returns’ have been reached with systems and processes, the three inter-connected factors that distinguish the best companies are the quality of their learning and leadership and the amount of workforce empowerment.

The British Safety Council will take a leading role in other educational activities 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.

Other free educational activities that take place include practical seminars from event partners such as Arco. Their seminar called ‘Don’t Be In the Dark’ presented by Ken Smith, Divisional Director of Arco Training and Consultancy, will look at the introduction of the new Approved Code of Practice and Guidance L101 for confined spaces and how they might affect different organisations.

Health & Safety Scotland is supported by the British Safety Council, Safety Groups UK and 3M Safety Solutions is the lead sponsor. The event is also officially endorsed by the International Institute of Risk & Safety Management (IIRSM).
