Conference overview

Respiratory health issues creep up slowly, with many people not realising they have a condition, often thinking their symptoms are simply due to lack of fitness or to getting older. As a result of this, often a condition does not get diagnosed in the early stages.

Presented by experts from the Health and Safety Executive, the Health and Safety Laboratory and the private sector, this seminar aims to outline an employer’s responsibilities for respiratory health and to identify control measures that can reduce the likelihood of problems and identify any health issues early.

Their talks and interactive sessions will cover a range of pertinent topics among these are: employers’ responsibilities; respiratory health effects; control measures such as alternatives, local exhaust ventilation, localised hand-tool dust extraction and respiratory protective equipment; face-fit testing; and health surveillance.

The seminar is aimed at company directors, health and safety consultants and advisors and others responsible for ensuring the health of employees and others while at work.
