Safety & Health Awareness Day

Over 60 delegates were in attendance and presentations were given by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), Kennedys Law, Howes Percival, HROC Public Relations and the MPA.
A range of current issues were discussed from a corporate and legal perspective and the safeprecast website was also launched during the day.
