HSL: Managing Health Risks in Construction Seminar – HSL Buxton, 5 Oct 2016

Book Course

HSL is to run a 1 day course on Construction – Managing Health Risks in Construction Seminar.

5 October 2016

As a construction worker you are 100 times more likely to die
from ill health caused by your work than through an accident.
However, there is a tendency to focus on immediate likelihood of
harm rather than the things that kill workers slowly. Deaths in
construction workers caused by a cumulative exposure to health
risks over many years are completely preventable, yet do we do
enough to recognise and act upon the known risk factors?

Who Should Attend

This seminar will be of interest to employers and contractors of
construction workers, health and safety managers and others with
responsibilities for health under Construction Design and
Management Regulations.

 

Venue

The seminar will be held at the Health Safety Laboratory in
the spa town of Buxton. Buxton is in the heart of the Peak District
and has good links to mainline train stations and Manchester
International Airport.

Cost

The cost of this seminar is £450 per
person (includes notes, lunch and refreshments).

Take a look at this VIDEO HERE by the Health in Construction
Leadership Group – it reinforces the key message of treating health
with the same importance as safety: in an industry that, to date,
has tended to ‘shout about safety but whisper about
health’.
