In the previously published article, I highlighted the legal requirement for a duty holder to be appointed to identify asbestos containing materials (ACM’s) and follow regulations to ensure the asbestos is managed safely. Further information on this, and other Health and Safety, issues will be available for free at the Health and Safety Midlands Show later this year.
A series of free seminars organised by the British Safety Council are to be held at the Health and Safety Midlands Show. These seminars provide an update on key developments concerning health, safety and environmental policy, law and management. They are delivered by expert speakers at the cutting edge of health and safety. Rosi Edwards, Regional Director for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in Wales, Midlands and South West will be delivering a seminar titled ‘What HSE is and isn’t looking for from duty holders’.
Another asbestos related seminar on the day will be ‘Asbestos management – where are we now?’ and ‘Are you fit enough?…a practical guide to Fit Testing and Competency’. Various other Health and Safety issues will be raised in the remaining seminars, for example: ‘Directors in the dock – could it be you?’; ‘The legal scene in 2012’; ‘Designing and delivering high impact health and safety communication campaigns’ and; ‘Environmental policy and management update’.
The free event is being held from 9.00 to 16.00 hours on 12 – 13 September 2012 at the National Motorcycle Museum, Coventry Road, Bickenhill, Solihull, West Midlands. B92 0EJ.
