Institute of Employment Rights Conference
The health agenda at work
17 February 2010, London
A tiny percentage of major injuries at work (fewer than 1 in every 15) now result in a Health and Safety Executive (HSE) investigation. The numbers of inspectors has dwindled in recent years, while the numbers of prosecutions taken and enforcement notices issued have continued to fall dramatically. Continuous unsustainably low levels of government funding for the HSE mean worse is likely to come. Come to our conference to hear updates from specialists in the field and add to the debate on how we put health and safety at work back on the agenda.
Speakers: Prof Phil James, Oxford Brookes University; Prof Andy Watterson, Stirling University; Rita Donaghy; Prof Dave Walters, Cardiff University; Steve Kay, Prospect at HSE; Everald Brown, London Hazards Centre; Susan Murray, Unite the Union; Hope Daley, Unison; Dr David Whyte, Liverpool University.
