NASS Steel Industry Safety and Health Awareness Day – 21st June 2017

Wednesday 21st June 2017
EEF Technology Hub
3, Nexus Point, Gavin Way, Birmingham B6 7AF

The National Association of Steel Service Centres (NASS) in conjunction with the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), Wolverhampton City Council and EEF, The Manufacturers Association are hosting our annual Safety and Health Awareness Day (SHAD) aimed at tackling common health and safety issues in the Steel Service Centre and Stockholding Industry.

WG Training Ltd. will be talking to delegates about managing safely with particular focus on communication and impact. NASS will be looking at changes in the revised HSG 246, written in conjunction with the HSE and Wolverhampton City Council which will be the main point of reference for HSE Inspectors investigating Steel Service Centres facilities going forward.

The HSE will also give an overview of The HSE Inspection Campaign for 2017 and the HSE agenda for metals manufacturers for 2017, with a brief look at FFI and sentencing.

EEF and SHE Ltd. will be looking at identifying and negating hazards during lifting operations including Safety Codes of Practice for various types of cranes and mobile equipment, the use of chain and rope and sling identification, safe working loads and use of crane controls.

The HSL will be looking at falls from vehicles with consideration for negating trip hazards and root cause behaviour. Understanding the science behind slips and trips makes it easier to identify the true cause of a fall and prevent future incidents and this session will be highlighting successful interventions that offer a great starting point for organisations looking to reduce falls.

All sessions will involve practical demonstrations or case studies in a group scenario to give delegates an opportunity to share and learn.

The fee for this event is £50 for NASS Members and £65 for non NASS Members
