The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has announced the date for this year’s Health and Work Conference, with the free, interactive, event taking place on 15 November 2022. Registrations for the virtual all-day event are now open.
Building on the success of last year’s conference, which saw huge demand, HSE has increased the capacity five-fold to provide 5,000 spaces for delegates.
The conference is part of HSE’s approach to inspire and promote better prevention, management and control of the common risks and causes of work-related ill-health across Great Britain.
At the conference HSE will unveil how it is supporting the government’s response to the Health is Everyone’s Business (HiEB) consultation, as well as discussions on topics including work related stress and mental health, occupational health, musculoskeletal disorders, and occupational lung disease.
Delegates at the event will see how health and work is evolving not just in response to the pandemic, but also around the actions we need to take collectively as employers, employees, regulators and others to prevent harm caused by work-related ill-health.
Ali Wellens, HSE’s head of health and work branch, said: “Health in the workplace needs to be a priority for everyone.
“This conference is a unique opportunity to engage with HSE’s regulatory inspectors, scientists and health topic specialists.
“There will also be the chance to connect with peers and delve deeper into the topics that are of interest to you via a selection of elective workshops on priority areas of health and work.
“The day will include discussions around work related stress and mental health, occupational health, musculoskeletal disorders, occupational lung disease and COSHH and much more.”
Spaces are limited, so please register for the Health and Work Conference 2022 today.
