British Safety Council Starts 2011 Breakfast Briefing Series

The first breakfast briefing this year is taking place Wednesday in Belfast, with three speakers sharing their companies' best practices and Neal Stone, the council's director of Policy & Research, discussing progress on Lord Young's review of health and safety regulation.

The British Safety Council will kick off its 2011 Breakfast Briefing series on Wednesday at a Radisson hotel in Belfast. The event builds on 2010 breakfast sessions in Belfast, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Manchester, Bristol, and Birmingham and will give safety managers, supervisors, safety representatives, consultants, and others useful guidance and an update on safety and health regulations.

Speakers for the event are:

  • Martina Donohoe, Quality & Safety manager for Aramark Ireland, who will discuss how the company manages the health and safety hazards at 420 sites where its workforce of more than 4,000 employees are employed.
  • Andrew Ryan, partner and head of the Environment and Planning Team at Tughans LLP, who will explain how companies should deal with an investigation of their environmental practices and procedures
  • Tom Stephenson, Health, Safety and Environment manager for Balcas Timber, who will discuss its award-winning health and safety program's elements and benefits
  • Neal Stone, the council's director of Policy & Research, who will provide an update on key health and safety developments, including progress to date on fulfilling Lord Young's recommendations about health and safety regulations.

The council has more than 10,000 members. It recently announced the formation of a Think Tank, headed by Stone, to shape policy, undertake research, and influence important workplace health and safety issues and future legislation. Julie Nerney, the council's chief executive, said the organization "will enable the British Safety Council to further influence and inform health and safety legislation, policy and debate, and engage with government and other key stakeholders on health and safety issues that really matter to businesses and workers alike. It will also allow us to spread knowledge about health and safety solutions, publish easy-to-follow practical guidance and work to help all employers achieve best practice in this area," she said.
