Lone Worker Safety Expo 2018

The feedback on the 2018 programme was excellent. Many delegates commented on the breadth of subjects covered and were surprised by just how much Lone Working impacts in different sectors.

In 2019 we want to ensure the day continues to be engaging interactive and offers valuable information and that it takes the learning just a little bit further.

We will begin the day with our ‘Ask the Experts’ Session where delegates are able to discuss their challenges and concerns with subject experts. This will be followed by a keynote conference with headline speakers and an interactive panel discussion. In the afternoon there will be an opportunity for delegates to choose from four focused workshops. 

Throughout the day there will also be the option to chat with our trusted exhibitors. All who will be able to share with you their Lone Worker Solutions….and don’t forget there are plenty of chances to network with likeminded professionals over a great lunch!
