Mike Robinson, Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, said, “A clear challenge facing us as an industry is around that of ‘health’. We know that ‘safety’ has dominated the conversation for decades, and we are all now looking at what it means in terms of health, given that we speak of ‘health and safety’. Is it occupational health, is it health and wellbeing? The question remains how do we encourage health - what opportunities are there to learn lessons from the safety culture to help build a health culture? We also know that mental health is a particular facet of this and we have so much to do in terms of addressing just this aspect of health in a more coherent way.”
Our conference will be an opportunity to gain insight from policy makers and thought leaders as well as hear about good practice and experience built up from leading organisations. This conference will unpack how ‘health’ integrates within safety, HR and environmental management and how it will build value as well as resilience into your business.
