With the country slowly recovering from the effect of both COVID19 and Brexit, SHW Live is set to reconnect regional occupational safety and health professionals in the North and North-West of England. The event, which is taking place at Manchester Central, presents a welcome, in-person return for the health, safety, and wellbeing community.

British Safety Council CEO Mike Robinson is excited abouf the reinvented format, he said: “British Safety Council is pleased to be supporting What Else Events and the exciting new regional Safety, Health and Wellbeing Live events, as an Event Partner. The regional format of the events provides another important opportunity for us to bond, as well as provide education and practical advice around health, safety, and wellbeing. We look forward to a mutually fruitful partnership.”

International Institute of Risk & Safety Management (IIRSM) chief executive Phillip Pearson is also pleased to be a part of the event, stating: “We’re delighted to be partnering with Safety, Health and Wellbeing Live next year. This will be an opportunity, after such a challenging period, to take stock, share lessons learned and showcase some excellent innovations in the safety, health and wellbeing area.”

With the introduction of appropriate steps to protect against COVID-19, and an excellent line-up of speakers and panel sessions on offer, bookings for the conference have been very strong.

Organisers hope to attract more than 2,000 members of the OSH community to the innovative, informative, and impactful event. Members of the manufacturing and engineering, construction, transport, and public sectors will be actively seeking product information, solutions, and best practice advice to improve workplace standards.

With ongoing industry challenges such as tight budgets, travel, and time restrictions, SHW Live aims to provide the only truly accessible, affordable, and sustainable platform for the community to meet in person.
