‘Safety & Industry 4.0’ webinar, hosted by SafeStart International, takes place on Tuesday 18 September at 10am and will “explore the role of human factors as we enter the 4th Industrial Age, an aspect often underestimated or forgotten by employers as they move towards a world shaped by big data and automation”.

Topics to be explored include the “factory of the future”, new methods and new hazards. Hosted by SafeStart Development Director, David Hughes and Lead Consultant for Europe, Sarah Stoker, the webinar, supported by Safety Management magazine, focus on the workforce and how to navigate a less than perfect world.
