OH professionals head to Scotland for IOSH conference 2003

With less than two months to go, the 2003 IOSH Annual Conference and
Exhibition is living up to its theme of ‘Professionals in partnership’, and is
gaining support from many leading OSH organisations.

Being held in Scotland for the first time, the institution’s prestigious
two-day event will take place at the Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre,
Glasgow, on Wednesday 23 and Thursday 24 April. As well as the full conference
programme, there will also be an extensive exhibition showcasing the latest
products and services in health and safety.

Building on the success of Manchester in 2002, the conference will once
again feature both parallel and plenary sessions to allow delegates to tailor
the programme to their needs. The plenary sessions include the keynote speech
from Hans-Horst Konkolewsky, director of the European Agency for Safety and
Health at Work, and the close of conference presentation by Gavin Hastings,
former Scotland rugby captain.

The 24 parallel sessions have been designed to allow delegates to follow one
particular stream through a conference session. The highlights of the parallel
sessions include:

– Professor Julian Peto, head of epidemiology at the Institute of Cancer
Research, examining the health issues of asbestos

– Chris Sharp, president of occupational medicine, Royal Society of
Medicine, looking at the medical perspective of MSDs

– Gordon Tinline, managing consultant at Robertson Cooper, detailing beacons
of excellence in stress prevention

The full conference fee for IOSH 2003 is £445 +VAT for members, and £545
+VAT for non-members. For further information, including details of attendance
