Health & Safety in Industrial Laboratories - Are Your People Safe?

Organised by:

SCI's Environment Health and Safety Group and SCI's Yorkshire and Humber Group

Huddersfield

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.

Synopsis

This event is organised in association with YCF Ltd.

Maintaining laboratory safety in a sustainable cost-effective manner can be difficult especially in times of business contraction, introduction of new technologies, high staff turnover and retirement of a significant number of highly experienced staff.

This event will provide experiences from a range of knowledgeable practitioners in developing a sustainable health and safety culture and associated safe working practices in the process industries. It will also provide a unique opportunity to network with fellow safety practitioners with laboratory responsibilities, to share best practice, and to troubleshoot common issues.
