Willmott Dixon’s Seminar
RVT Group was delighted to attend and present at the recent Willmott Dixon 'Back to the Future' Seminar. The key aim of the event was to raise awareness of occupational health risks to Willmott Dixon's supply chain partners. In particular, the focus was on noise, dust and hand-arm vibration hazards, which aren't so widely thought of or protected against.
It was an enlightening day and one we thoroughly enjoyed being a part of. We particularly appreciated the opportunity to raise awareness of potentially life-threatening health hazards on site, and be able to answer questions one-on-one.
Our presentation focused on the risk of not effectively controlling dust. We highlighted the most common types of dust found on sites, the harm they can cause, and the engineering controls available.
"It was a privilege to be invited to speak at an event organised by Willmott Dixon, one of the leading companies in the drive to improve health conditions within the construction sector. Throughout the event there was a clear call to action – not only to meet the basic health standards, but to be prepared to really raise the bar."

Our vision is a world where the impact of site work on life and health is effectively zero. Supporting events like this and encouraging everyone to play a part, is a significant step on this journey.
