IOSH 2002 – ready to make a difference

It has taken more than 12 months of planning but the IOSH 2002 Annual
Conference and Exhibition is nearly upon us.

Featuring an extensive and wide-ranging programme, the event, entitled,
Making a difference: influencing attitudes – changing behaviour, will be held
on 15 to 16 April 2002 at the Manchester International Convention Centre.

The quality of the programme over the two days can be gauged by the keynote
speaker, the former RAF navigator and best-selling author of Tornado down, John
Nichol. John was shot down on the first low-level daylight raid during the Gulf
War and spent several traumatic weeks in captivity. His presentation will give
a fascinating insight into what happens when our innermost reserves are tested,
and how change can not only be survived, but even turned to advantage.

Joining John on the programme will be a wide range of leading speakers, including
John Shears, director of installations, British Gas Ltd; Dr Andrew Colvin,
project medical adviser, Channel Tunnel Rail Link; Dr Deborah Lucas, head of
human factors, Hazardous Installations Directorate, HSE; Pam Waldron, head of
field operations Scotland, HSE; and Dr Mike McKiernan, director, occupational
policy, Engineering Employers’ Federation.

With seven major plenary presentations and 18 parallel sessions scheduled,
the conference will offer opportunities for delegates to select the topics of most
interest to them. A variety of booking options, including a special SME rate,
will also be available.

The delegate rate for IOSH 2002, which includes all sessions, papers, lunch
and refreshments, is £445+VAT for IOSH members, £495+VAT for non-members. For
