In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, NWCSG held its annual general meeting this week, using the ZOOM virtual conferencing portal.

Over sixty participants attended the session and got the benefit of two excellent talks during what is our most popular annual event.

Madeleine Abas, specialist H&S Solicitor of OAH Law, provided the group with her annual legal update and Phil Strickland, HM Principal Inspector of Health and Safety (Construction), briefed the group on the HSE’s plan of work, recent prosecution case history and what is expected from the construction industry in terms of COVID-19. The event was recorded, so members that weren’t able to make the ‘live’ session can log in and view it again here.

Feedback from the session was very positive, and so plans are already afoot to host our next meeting in the same way. This will take place on 02 June at 14:00 and will feature talks by James Gorry – H&S keynote speaker and Professor Tim Marsh – behavioural safety expert and published author

Pre-registration is required and members wishing to attend can register here.
