The Future of Health and Safety at Work 2021

The Institute of Government & Public Policy will be hosting The Future of Health and Safety at Work 2021 online on the 28th – 29th July.

Join us at this timely event to explore the most pressing issues for health and safety professionals that have emerged as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, and how to tackle them head on.

According to the latest HSE statistics, in 2019-20 28.8 million working days were lost due to work-related illness and workplace injury. The estimated cost of injuries and ill health in the workplace was £16.2 billion in 2018/2019.n

The Future of Health and Safety at Work 2021 will address key issues of increasing cases of work-related stress and ill health, the impact of working from home and Covid-19 on mental health, and the additional challenge the pandemic has presented for employers in making workplaces Covid-secure with safe social distancing and adequate PPE. Through case study examples, it aims to illustrate how teams have transformed their practice and high-level keynotes will give the latest overview of policy developments.

Delegates will hear from senior representatives of Health and Safety Executive, British Safety Council, Department for Work and Pensions, Mental Health First Aid England, IOSH, and more.

Meet other like-minded professionals beneficial to your network, and form part of conversation and debate that will impact the wider agenda for future planning.
