The NBCC is highlighting this event as it specifically deals with crime prevention/awareness topics which are beneficial to the business community. The NBCC are not endorsing the event but making the business community aware so that you can attend if you decide that it is of benefit.
Many organisations couldn’t function without lone working. However, we know that some risks (violence and aggression for example) are increased when people work alone. Aware of this fact, the Health and Safety Executive tasks organisations to meet their requirement that ‘lone workers should be at no greater risk than other employees’.
The Lone Worker Safety Expo conference and exhibition focuses solely on the security, safety and well being risks of lone working.
If you are responsible for lone workers, need to understand your legal obligations, or want practical advice on how to minimise risks associated with lone working, then this event may be of benefit to you.
The event will be held in Central London on Tuesday 2nd October 2018. With speakers from the Health and Safety Executive, the British Safety Council, the BSIA, law firm Pinsent Masons, IOSH, and other well-respected organisations, this is perfect place to gain valuable information and guidance. The NBCC will also be presenting at this event.
The event offers the opportunity to gain direct access to experts, experienced professionals and trusted exhibitors. The morning will consist of a keynote conference sharing best practice and expert knowledge. And in the afternoon there is an opportunity to get involved with practical workshops.
