Challenging The Way We Think About Health
RVT Group was honoured to speak on behalf of BOHS at this year's Health and Wellbeing at Work event, held at the NEC in Birmingham earlier this month.
Taking place over two days, this popular event attracted health, wellbeing and safety professionals from a huge range of backgrounds and industries. Informative and interactive, it was packed full of presentations that ensured delegates left with a greater awareness and understanding of occupational health issues.
Our presentation aimed to challenge the audience on the way we think about health. We discussed the many hazards that construction site workers face each day, before concentrating our focus on airborne contaminants. We provided examples of effective solutions and best practice for controlling harmful airborne pollutants, and assisted the audience in considering the consequences of effective versus ineffective control measures.
RVT's Sales Director Julian Hayward commented
"Occupational health is not all about fresh-fruit-Fridays. It's about careful consideration of the working environment for every person, taking into account the long-term effects of every activity."
