Raising the Bar in On-Site Health
The 2017 Breathe Freely Breakfast events kicked off at Edgbaston Cricket Ground in Birmingham last month. It was another well attended event by professionals across a range of industries who have a responsibility for the health and safety of their workforce.
"We are very pleased for the opportunity to be supporting the Breathe Freely campaign again this year. It provides an excellent forum for everyone to unite in this common purpose. It facilitates group discussions and sharing of ideas – the progress that's been made, success stories of what's worked for them to help raise the bar for on-site health protection, as well as discuss the challenges faced." commented Tim Dupont, Director of Marketing at RVT Group.
Building on the awareness generated in previous Breathe Freely events, RVT's Vern Harrington presented the practical ways to implement effective dust control on sites in fast moving temporary construction environments. By looking at a few of our live projects, Vern explained the challenges each site faced in protecting its personnel, and outlined the solutions we were able to provide to eliminate or minimise the health risk.
Further presentations from HSE and BOHS provided insightful updates. The HSE explained how they're supporting sites to become safer. And BOHS described how they can help with a range of resources and opportunities for further collaboration.
We're looking forward to seeing you at the next free breakfast event in Bristol on Thursday 21st September – click here for more details and to book your place.
