The British Safety Council’s annual conference this year is highlighting key health and safety campaigns, including work-related transport, occupational health and young people at work.
The conference entitled ‘Health and Safety – What’s Next?’ will be taking place on 23 September 2015 at Dexter House in central London.
Glen Davies, Freight & Fleet Programme Manager at Transport for London, will be presenting their new ‘Safer Lorry Scheme’ which launches at the beginning of September. At present, heavy goods vehicles are involved in a disproportionate number of fatal collisions involving cyclists and pedestrians. In 2013, HGVs were involved in 9 out of 14 incidents leading to cyclist fatalities in London.
The British Safety Council will also be updating members and others on their Speak Up, Stay Safe campaign, which aims to put young people and confident communication at the heart of good health and safety.
