Our speakers will discuss HSE and IOD guidance which states:

Addressing health and safety should not be seen as a regulatory burden: it offers significant opportunities…

  • reduced costs and reduced risks – employee absence and turnover rates are lower, accidents are fewer, the threat of legal action is lessened; 
  • improved standing among suppliers and partners; 
  • a better reputation for corporate responsibility among investors, customers and communities; 
  • increased productivity – employees are healthier, happier and better motivated.
