This year’s Health, Safety & Environmental Congress will bring together some of the leading HSE Professionals to showcase and discuss some of the key challenges across multiple industries in the United Kingdom. The highly engaging program across two days will piece together topics around Safety Culture, Behavioural Safety, Digital Transformation, Risk Management & Operational Effectiveness, Future Technologies and much more. Stricter regulations and the focus on reducing the number of incidents means HSE professionals need to continue to educate, thought-lead and keep up with the pace of change within their industry. The HSE congress will provide a content-based platform of Keynotes, Panels, Workshops and Roundtables, all built into two exciting days in the luxurious and breath-taking surroundings of the De Vere Cotswold Water Park Hotel. Network with like-minded professionals to support your current strategic objectives. Attendance will give you the chance to learn how best to implement, build and buy the right solutions and technologies that are at the forefront of HSE improvement in the United Kingdom.

Roundtable 1: Driver Safety

More information:

More than a quarter of road traffic accidents involve a “working” vehicle. Are your drivers competent? Are you ensuring the correct procedures and training are in place? Are you up to speed with new innovative technology that could save your driver’s lives? This discussion will be the engine for your education on Driver Safety.

Roundtable 5: PPE

Regulation changes forces Personal Protective Equipment to be at the forefront of all HSE professionals minds. 


More information:

With an increase in fines and in some cases prison sentences, we have limited time to implement new correct PPE with the right certification within our organisations. These regulation changes along with advancements in materials/technology brings realisation there is no better time to discuss Personal Protective Equipment than now!

Roundtable 6: Compliance and Risk

How do we know we are 100% compliant? Do we challenge ourselves to know if we are compliant? – more importantly do you know the risks around not being compliant? 

More information:

This interactive discussion will be around how you can understand your business challenges in competing with “occupational compliance”. Do you fully understand some of the latest legislation’s and the risk behind not knowing or even ignoring them? – believe us, that still happens!

Roundtable 8:

Where Technology meets Risk –  Digitalization of Risk Management.

Roundtable 9:

The Hidden Cost of Substance Misuse in the Workplace….can you afford to ignore it?



More information:

It’s been reported that up to 3 million workers in the UK (3% of the total UK workforce) go to work under the influence of substances annually.

In 2018 UKAT (UK Addiction Treatment) revealed statistics showing 40% of industrial accidents are inked to substance misuse with an escalated cost to employers of a combined value of £36bn a year.

The UK Health and Safety Executive (HSE) mandates that all employers have a legal duty to protect employees health, safety and welfare,  This extends out to ‘understanding signs of drug and alcohol misuse will help you to manage health and safety risks in your workplace, develop a policy to deal with drug and alcohol-related problems and support your employees’.

Join our Eurofins Workplace Drug Testing team as we lead a round table discussion looking at statistics, signs, and symptoms of drugs misuse and approaches to implement effective policies.
