SAFETYnet Annual Conference 2021: Back to Basics to Build a Better Tomorrow

Virtual conference

This year’s annual conference starts by going back to the basics of health and safety – covering some of the key things which might have had a lower priority during Covid.

It then looks to the future highlighting the important imminent changes coming for registered providers and health and safety teams in particular.

Why should you attend?

The pandemic has been a challenging time for many resulting in changing priorities and altered working practices. And now we have the new Building Safety Bill. This conference gives everyone with responsibility and an interest in health and safety to recentre and refocus – catch up with the basics of the big six (fire, electrics, gas, lifts, asbestos and water safety) and get ahead of the game with the Building Safety Bill.
