The Lone Worker Safety Expo has a brand new team organising the event for 2018 and with this comes some great new initiatives to make the day more accessible and more informative for anyone involved in managing the safety, security and wellbeing of Lone Workers.
Now under the direction of Nicole Vazquez of Worthwhile Training who has helped organisations to manage lone worker safety for over 20 years, the event moves to a new Central London venue, has a new format and includes a much wider perspective on lone working issues.
Nicole told us “It was time for a shake-up. The breadth of activities that people do as Lone Workers has changed over then past few years and so has the type and level of risk. We needed the event to reflect this”. She added, “We also know that people need to gain tangible value from events such as these and so we want to make sure that people can walk away with practical advice and guidance”.
This year’s event will include a headline morning conference with speakers from the Health and Safety Executive, the British Safety Council, and law firm Pinsent Masons. This will be followed by an opportunity for delegates to mix with a select group of suppliers of lone worker solutions over a hot lunch in the beautiful orangery of the Kings Fund building where the event is being held.
The afternoon offers an opportunity for delegates to choose from a range of interactive workshops covering topics such as mental health and wellbeing, violence and aggression against staff, and contingency planning for terrorist attacks when staff are travelling in the UK and abroad.
The event is open to anyone who has a responsibility for or who is interested in Lone Working and you can register on the website. There are discounts available for IOSH members and for charitable organisations.
