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 2:

 Implementing Safety Improving Across Your Fleet.

More Information:

Road accidents are one of the leading causes of fatalities at work. Running a safe fleet, therefore, is hugely important both for your drivers and for your business. But what’s the best way to optimise safety and ensure you’re doing the best you can?

Join the Masternaut roundtable for unique insight and a practical discussion on implementing safety improvements across your fleet. We’ll talk about:

  • How best to engage drivers in a safety improvement programme
  • The tools available to you to support improvements in safety
  • How to measure progress and the KPIs that should be tracked

The session will be hosted by Jonathan Smith, Corporate Sales Director, and Mike Hemming, UK Catalytix Director, both of whom have lots of experience working with fleets on bespoke projects to improve safety and will share what they consider to be best practices across the Masternaut customer base. Attendees will be encouraged to ask questions and share their own learnings from safety initiatives they’ve participated in, meaning the whole group will benefit from shared fleet knowledge.

Roundtable 3:

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 arelinked 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.


Roundtable 4:

Roundtable 5:

Drug & Alcohol Safe Workplace 


More Information:

Join us for an interactive roundtable session in partnership with Thames Water. 

We take a practical look at how companies manage the risk and day to day running of an effective drug & alcohol testing programme.

Understand the view from a client and supplier perspective around the issues caused by substance misuse and the potential consequences. 

We will discuss several real-life examples and how you can address the challenges associated to substance misuse within your organisation and achieve a safe, healthy, productive and admired workplace.

Roundtable 6:

Correctly Leveraging Online Traning Into Your Fleet Safety Program

More Information:

Online training has the potential to offer the most flexible, bespoke solution to any organization, but particularly to those with large, global fleets. However, some still view online training as less effective, too simplistic, or simply not a good fit for their company. Using real-world examples, Alertdriving will demonstrate first how to correctly identify both the key factors and operational constraints that someone looking to improve their safety program must consider, then how to correctly design an online solution that can augment your current program and achieve real results.

Roundtable 7:

Leverage The Latest Technology To Create A Friction Less Reporting Culture

More Information:

One of the many benefits IOT and advances in technology has brought to EHS is the concept of accessing systems while mobile or remote working. 

Explore how social media, IoT4, mobile and digital technologies can be leveraged to break down reporting barriers. See how different platforms combined with the right technology can increase reporting efficiencies from power users and fringe users to members of the public.  

Discuss how to identify what the right technology, frequency and content is in delivering EHS communication alert notifications.  

Roundtable 8:



Roundtable 9: IoT

How can the progression and development of the Internet of Things have a significant impact on health and safety as an industry?



More Information:

We are all on the same wavelength when it comes to what we are trying to achieve – and that’s to save lives, the IoT based applicants are primed and ready to offer safe, reliable and efficient solutions in support us as a whole. The IoT connects a whole world of opportunity and safety managers are discovering that comprehensive safety programs that include the capabilities of the Industrial Internet of Things are seeing significant gains in a number of areas.
