BESA and ECA host safety forums

9577938_sUK: The Building Engineering Services Association is to host a series of practical health and safety forums, in partnership with the Electrical Contractors’ Association.

The four Health and Safety Focus Forums – in Newport (Feb 11), London (Feb 25), Rugby (Apr 14) and Leeds (Apr 21) – will include key technical updates on core health and safety issues such as the Construction (Design and Management) Regulations 2015 and imminent changes to sentencing guidelines, and a presentation by keynote speaker James Vernon of leading law firm Beale and Company.

“Adherence to best health and safety practice is crucial to all reputable businesses – and represents a key element in the independent competence assessment regime with which all existing and aspiring BESA members must comply,” explained the BESA’s technical director Tim Rook.

“The health and safety performance of our members is of paramount importance and we look forward to working closely with the BESA to ensure that building services contractors receive cost-effective, up-to-date and high quality health and safety guidance,” commented ECA director of business services Paul Reeve.

“Working closely with the BESA on these events is an exciting development, as part of wider collaboration to raise awareness and lead the way on health and safety issues across the building services sector.”

Attendance at all Health and Safety Focus Forums is free to members of the BESA and ECA. The non-members delegate fee is £150.00 (plus VAT) per event.
