Health and Safety Help! - The Real Health and Safety Conference – speakers confirmed

15 January 2019

The wait is over, we can finally announce the speakers and expert panel we have lined up for this year’s conference.

Complementing our expert lawyers and consultants, we are delighted to be joined by guest speakers and panel members including:

  • Richard Neall – Chief Executive Officer, ONE Group Construction
  • Eddie Scoggins – Head of Health and Safety, Hutchinson Ports UK 
  • Nicola Jaynes – HM Inspector of Health and Safety
  • Paul Sambrook – Group Risk & Compliance Director, Atalian Servest
  • John Willbourne – Capita, Property and Infrastructure H&S expert witness
  • Beverley Bell CBE – Consultant at Birketts and former Senior Traffic Commissioner.

Bringing expertise from industry, the regulators and practice, our speakers have a wealth of knowledge to inform our discussion on collaborative health and safety. 

The keynote speaker will be Richard Neall. Those who attended the conference in 2017 will know how engaging and relevant Richard is and promises to be again. Matthew Gowen, Legal Director (Barrister) in Birketts’ Health and Safety Team will also provide an update on the sentencing guidelines and the real impact now that they are firmly imbedded within the court’s sentencing procedure.

Our breakout sessions will provide an opportunity to delve deeper into the concept of collaborative health and safety within your own industries, sharing your knowledge and experiences.

Lastly the expert panel debate is a chance to ask questions of the experts in an open forum and to provide any further comments that you have on this engaging subject.

We look forward to seeing you there… did we mention there would also be lunch?!
