An upcoming event in Nottingham will aim to reduce the number of work injuries in the UK and educate managers about how they can lower risk in the workplace.
The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health is hosting its annual symposium between September 5th and 7th at the Nottingham Belfry Hotel, where attendees will be shown how to manage workplace dangers and prevent employees from suffering a work injury.
Throughout the three-day residential conference, attendees will be provided with public sector health and safety advice and guidance on how to effectively manage occupational road risk, as well as essential best practice and legal updates.
"Now in its 35th year, the symposium is aimed at anyone with responsibility for managing or organising health and safety in the workplace, especially those from the public, healthcare, education and environmental and waste management sectors," the organisers stated.
Preventing work injury will also be the key theme of the RoSPA Health and Safety in Waste Management event, taking place later this month in Birmingham, where attendees will learn about preventing falls and slips in the workplace.
