Health and Safety Midlands 2012


Taking place on the 12 and 13 this September at The National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham, will be the inaugural Health and Safety Midlands, providing visitors with the latest information on legislations, the opportunity to meet the industry’s most highly and respected organisations and also the chance to network with other professionals.


The conference programme, put together by the British Safety Council, will be covering the latest news and legislative updates within the industry. For example, starting off the event will be Rosi Edwards, regional director, Wales, Midlands and South West, HSE, whose presentation is entitled ‘What HSE is and isn't looking for from dutyholders’. Commenting on her presentation Edwards said, “I am looking to explain what the HSE is, and as importantly isn’t, looking for from duty holders. Businesses need to concentrate on what is important for them to be successful as a business and hopefully this seminar will help them focus on what matters from a health and safety standpoint.”

In addition there also three new information zones planned for the Midlands event, which are: ‘Cleaning & Hygiene Zone’, aimed at providing the latest information for health and safety professionals who are also responsible for specifying and purchasing cleaning products and services; ‘Live Demonstration Zone’, offering visitors the chance to see first-hand how new product technologies can dramatically improve the safety of your workforce, improve worker comfort and therefore reduce costs and enhance productivity; and finally the ‘Height Safety Zone’, which will not only provide access to many of the UK's leading manufacturers of fall arrest and prevention equipment and training services, but will also provide educational seminars and live demonstrations during both days of the event.

There is also a substantial exhibition where some of the leading product and service providers in the health and safety industry are exhibiting, and will be available to advise on the latest technology and business practices related to safety and training in the electrical industry.

Alongside event partners 3M, Ansell, Arco, NQA and DuPont, Health and Safety Midlands is supported by the British Safety Council and Safety Groups UK and officially endorsed by the International Institute of Risk & Safety Management (IIRSM).
