IAT and IQ Digital Health and Safety Conference 2020

Join us for a week long virtual conference dedicated to the latest thinking and advice on health and safety onsite.

The conference will provide valuable continuing professional development (CPD) for quarrying and asphalt professionals and be a great opportunity for sharing knowledge and experiences.

Each day will focus on a different theme and will consist of two presentations - each lasting 25 minutes. Delegates are encouraged to take part in the whole session to contribute to the discussion and ask their own questions to the experts.

Topics covered include:

  • Mental Health: Supporting colleagues returning to work post-Covid 19.
  • Technology: How its use can improve safety onsite.
  • Environment: Making the connection between being sustainable and health and safety.
