Following the successful move from Keele to Chester in 2001, the renowned National Safety Symposium (NSS) is on the move again - and this year, it's going down south. Entitled Practicalities of safety, the three-day conference will take place at King Alfred's College, Winchester from Monday 2 September to Wednesday 4 September 2002.
The annual event, organised by IOSH's Public Services Group, is now in its 27th year. While traditionally associated with local authorities and public service bodies, 2002 builds upon last year's back-to-basics approach to provide a programme that will appeal to all those involved with the management and organisation of health and safety at work, regardless of industry.
The first speaker at the symposium will be the Mayor of Winchester, Councillor John Steel, who will give the keynote address. Over the next three days, a further 11 presentations will follow, focusing on many topical subjects including:
- 'best value' - experiences and lessons learnt
- tackling stress in the workplace
- flexible working
- the Local Authority Forum
- safe living history for all - a practical demonstration.
The Zurich Municipal Safety Awards will be presented at the annual Public Services Group Dinner, on the Monday evening, while Tuesday's dinner will feature Roy Walker, of ITV's Catchphrase fame, as the guest speaker.
The symposium fee, which includes accommodation, meals, refreshments and delegate pack, will be £399 + VAT. Discounts are available if multiple delegates from the same organisation book at the same time.
