The theme of resilience takes centre stage at NEBOSH’s first ever online conference later this year. Experts from the Health and Safety Executive, Travis Perkins, Johnson Matthey, Kier Highways, Cambridge Assessment and the Filipino International League of Safety Advocates, plus many more, will take to the screen to share their advice and learnings.

The free-to-attend, one-day online event takes place on 5 October 2021 and registration is open now. The conference comes at what has been a turbulent time for people everywhere. It will explore how health and safety professionals can help the organisations and workers in their care to be more resilient to challenges and change. Safety professionals spend so much time caring for other people that they must remember to care for themselves too; the agenda takes a closer look at careers as well as mindfulness to take some time for their own wellbeing.

“NEBOSH’s vision is to make the world of work a safer and healthier place. This conference will offer more learning opportunities to professionals, wherever they are in the world.” said Matt Powell-Howard, NEBOSH Head of Learning and Partnerships. “With a jam-packed agenda and a line-up of expert speakers, it’s going to be a great event!”

The conference, sponsored by Astutis, Green World Safety & Security Consultancies LLC, NIST Institute Pvt. Ltd., QHSE International and RRC International, takes place from 09:15-16:00 UK time on 5 October 2021.
