Inaugural Safety Show 2018
The inaugural Safety in Construction Show held at the iconic Derby Roundhouse earlier this month was attended by many senior decision makers and health and safety professionals from across the UK's construction and civil engineering industry.
The event was designed to bring together individuals who are key to delivering and maintaining health and safety practices on UK construction sites.
Thought leaders from the construction and civils industry presented on various health and safety topics. Some of the presentations from health professionals focused on one of the most common hazards found on construction sites – dust.

At RVT, we strive to provide highly effective protective equipment to help combat this deadly risk. We were pleased to display and discuss a range of equipment options with attendees at this event.
Our equipment on show included:
Kevin Dupont, our Southern Sales Representative, commented
"Attending the first Safety in Construction Show was thoroughly worthwhile. Not only did we get to hear many informative presentations by industry experts, we had the opportunity to catch up with some existing customers and introduce many more to our wide range of dust and fume control equipment.
We look forward to the next one!"
