British Safety Council
S1A 09.45 - 10.30 Nigel Bryson: Bryson Consulting Making Worker Involvement Effective People support what they help create. Effective worker involvement improves both health and safety standards and business performance. Using examples from successful case studies, key methods and techniques for creating effective worker involvement will be presented. These can assist any organisation to improve their health and safety performance and workforce communication.
S1B 11.00 - 11.45 Keith Scott: Trustees of IIRSM/Group Head of Safety Experts Leadership for Safety Practitioners Leadership is required at all levels within an organization and never more so than by safety professionals. Safety professionals practising at the higher levels in larger organizations need more than just health and safety qualifications and practical safety skills -they need the management skills that will enable them to become safety leaders in their own right and influence chief executives and senior managers. The presentation will consider these skills and how to put them into practice.

S1C 12.30 - 13.15 Richard Evens: Commercial Training Director, St John Ambulance First Aid: A Benefit, not a Burden Many businesses are still falling behind in the understanding and commitment to first aid training, treating it as a tick-box exercise, rather than a life saving skill. As employers look to expand the incentives offered in their employee benefit packages, it could be argued that offering first aid training would not only change how first aid is viewed by employers and employees but would no doubt increase the number of workers armed with this set of key skills, guaranteeing a safer working environment for thousands of employees. The presentation will consider how first aid can mean the difference between a life lost and a life saved, and present the case for offering first aid as an employee benefit.
S1D 14.00 - 14.45 Nattasha Freeman: Director Health & Safety: Phoenix Beard The Practical Management of Asbestos The presentation will cover the practical management of asbestos containing materials within property management including:- The Landlord and Tenant relationship; Property Maintenance and controlling Contractors; Dilapidations and Applications for Alteration; Emergency Planning;HSG264 the new Surveying Guidance and Implications for CDM.

S1F 11.45 - 12.30 Ian Samson: Territory Manager UK & Ireland Training Specialist, Dupont Personal Protection Dressing and Undressing Procedures for Chemical Clothing with other PPE The presentation will look at how to dress and undress (Donning and Doffing) chemical protective coverall while wearing other PPE. Other PPE can be gloves, footwear, respirators and half and full face masks .When dressing, it is important to dress in the correct order in a safe environment and to check that all is correct before proceeding into the working environment. After leaving the working environment, it is now more important to undress safely as you may be contaminated from the work place and you do not want to be exposed to chemical or dusts when undressing. Following simple steps, it can be shown how to minimise this and also in what order should the PPE removed.
S1G 13.15 - 14.00 Ansell Occupational Healthcare The importance of protecting hands from chemical risks in maintenance jobs Workers performing maintenance duties in industries such as automotive, OEM, metal, chemical, etc. are often unaware that substances like oil, solvents, mastics, etc. are chemicals that can cause skin irritation and allergies. A dedicated hand protection solution that seamlessly combines chemical protection and dexterity/tactility is therefore a must to protect the hands against these and many other hazards during maintenance applications. Based on deep industry insight and hand protection expertise and experience, Ansell can help companies select the most appropriate solutions from its wide glove range, thus improving both safety and productivity while cutting costs.
