News

Do you have risk assessment (RA) responsibilities or duties? Are your company’s procedures up to date and compliant with best practice? Have your assessments become box-ticking exercises? Are your RA procedures are in need of review?

If you answered ‘yes’ to any of the above, you could benefit from attending a one-day conference taking place on 1 February entitled Health, Occupational Hygiene and Safety: Working Together to Assess Risks.

The speakers at the event, which is set to take place in Fota Island Resort in Cork, include a combination of leading industrial and academic specialists as well as practicing consultants and experts from the Health and Safety Authority and the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS).

The conference will allow a panel of distinguished speakers to consider how we should work together to assess risks under a range of different scenarios. They will provide practical and current advice and consider some of the pitfalls of risk assessment.

The conference will challenge and broaden your understanding and approach to risk assessment. It will also provide practical and helpful guidance on:

  • Simple but effective approaches to chemical risk assessment;
  • How to develop a proactive approach to risk management;
  • The importance of skin exposure and how to control it;
  • How to assess noise and vibration exposure and practical ways of managing their risk;
  • Professional development, training options and practical tips for effective worker training;
  • What assessment approaches are successful and what improvements are required.

A trade exhibition will also be held in conjunction, presenting networking opportunities for delegates and allowing suppliers to showcase key products and services.

Details on the conference schedule, topics and speakers are available in this brochure and on the website www.env.ie. The conference fee is €300 (excluding VAT) and this covers lunch, documentation and refreshments. Further conference and booking details are also available on the website.
