Scottish Hazards 21st Annual Health & Safety Conference – “Health and Safety in Scotland’s Hands”
This is to remind all Scottish CWU Health and Safety Reps that the Scottish Hazards 21st Annual Health and Safety Conference takes place on Wednesday 24 November 11am – 2pm. The event will once again be an on-line virtual event via Zoom.
The event brings together more than 100 trade union safety reps, occupational health and safety professionals and activists. The Scottish Hazards Annual Conference is one of the highlights of Scotland’s health and safety calendar.
There will be two sessions. In the first the Conference will hear from Shavanah Taj and Roz Foyer, General Secretaries of the Wales TUC and Scottish TUC respectively. This session will hopefully set the foundation for future cooperation between the STUC, Wales TUC and Scottish Hazards to campaign for changes.
The second session will provide delegates with an update on the work of Scottish Hazards during the past year as plans moving forward and breakout rooms will allow delegates the opportunity to inform this work. In this session the Conference will also hear from Jawad Qasrawi from Hazards Magazine, the UK’s best health and safety magazine by far and a must for trade union branches and their health and safety reps. Other speakers/breakouts are; Kathy Jenkins (Climate Change in the Workplace) Patrick McGuire (Scottish Government Covid Enquiry), Louise Adams (IWMD and Culpable Homicide), Ian Tasker and Scott McCabe (Health and Safety Enforcement and Fair Work).
