The 2019 RoSPA Scotland Conference is fast approaching.

- The HSE will be there
We’re delighted to have the HSE supporting us at the conference and they will be speaking about 2 key issues. Firstly, Martin McMahon (HM Inspector of Health and Safety, HSE) and Robert Atkinson, (Organisational Lead (Occupational Health and Safety, NHS Health Scotland) will be discussing how to tackle work related ill health conditions. Then later on, Barry Baker, (Head of Operations (Scotland), HSE) will be going through the why’s, how’s and outcomes of an HSE investigation. Both promise to be fascinating sessions.
- Meet your peers
How often do you get to spend a day in a room full of likeminded health and safety professionals? Assuming the answer is “hardly ever” then this event is perfect for you. Company directors, senior managers, health and safety advisors and HR professionals will all be present, not just from Scotland but other parts of the UK as well.
- Support your workplace
Employee wellbeing is a massive issue at the minute, so what better time for an update on workplace wellbeing initiatives? Kevin Daniels (Professor of Organisational Behaviour, University of East Anglia) will be discussing the findings of a review of the scientific literature on implementing workplace wellbeing initiatives.

Senior Associate at Pinsent Masons, Katherine Metcalfe, will be giving a presentation on how to guard against employees committing driving offences. She will also be discussing what to do if there is a road accident involving your employees.

The Mavis Nye Foundation was created to inspire victims of mesothelioma, an asbestos related terminal cancer. The charity’s founder, Mavis Nye, will be sharing her story of how she was unknowingly exposed to asbestos.
