Dear Roy Perkins,
Re: Midland Construction Safety Association’s invitation to Nuts and Bolts – “What’s in your Safety Toolbox?”
The 2011 SOHSA Conference – 11 October 2011, Tapton Hall, Sheffield
We would like to extend a warm invitation to you and the members of Midland Construction Safety Association to the Annual Sheffield Occupational Health and Safety Association Conference, to be held on 11 October 2011. We would be delighted if you or your members would like to join us on the day. Please find details of the event included below and the event flyer attached to this email. We will also keep the association website updated with information at www.sohsa.org.uk/conference.
This year the SOHSA annual conference will focus on safely managing the maintenance activities that affect every workplace – whether it be servicing plant or equipment, contractors coming on site, the installation of new equipment or significant redevelopment works – we will examine the pit-falls, the myths and what does happen when it “all goes wrong”.
Promoting the Safe Maintenance Campaign of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and European Agency for Safety and Health at Work (EU-OHSA), the conference shall focus on the effective management of maintenance tasks and projects.
Expert speakers will discuss “what goes wrong and why” and how effective preventative maintenance benefits both incident reduction and reduced costs. We will see how Meadowhall Shopping Centre, a large retailing organisation, controls their contractors while still carrying out business as usual - operating one of the busiest shopping complexes in Europe. The conference will also consider the unknown and the need for effective dynamic risk control to support safe systems for maintenance teams to operate with when the going gets tough.
The day will help delegates understand the systems needed to effectively control and maintain their facilities, processes and equipment and provide tools and practical advice for effective operation.
Please find attached to this email the conference flyer and booking form. If you have any questions, or would like further information about the conference or exhibition opportunities please contact us without delay at firstname.lastname@example.org .
We look forward to seeing you at the conference!
