Momentum is building for the eagerly awaited return of the UKMHA’s National Safety Convention. The must-attend event is one of the highlights in the UK material handling calendar, and this year it promises to be bigger and better than before.
In its new home at the CBS Arena in Coventry, the convention, which takes place on Wednesday 11th October, carries the theme Implementing a Safety Culture. There will be a host of presentations based around the theme with leading speakers from across the material handling industry.
Workplaces such as warehouses and factories can be dangerous environments, with potential hazards everywhere, not the least of which is moving machinery, such as forklift trucks and other material handling equipment.
Minimising these risks with heightened awareness about the potential hazards will go a long way towards making workplaces safer and more productive environments. One of the best means of achieving this is to encourage companies to adopt their own safety culture.
Cameron Burnett, Director, UKMHA said: “The National Safety Convention is part of the UKMHA’s drive to deliver change within the material handling industry. Collectively, Safety Convention delegates are responsible for the lives of many thousands of workers across the UK, as such, it is crucial they possess the very best information on current safety protocols.
“The convention is aimed at users of material handling equipment who have a responsibility for ensuring the safety and wellbeing of their workers. It is attended annually by hundreds of managers from across the UK who come together to share best practice advice.”
The keynote speaker for this year’s convention is Dr Tim Marsh PhD, managing director of safety consultancy, Anker and Marsh. A visiting Professor at Plymouth University, he is considered a world authority on the subject of behavioural safety, safety leadership and organisational culture.
With his background in safety culture, he is the perfect authority to address delegates at this year’s convention.
Alongside the conference is a special exhibition from big name companies in the material handling sector.
