Lone Worker Safety Expo 2018
In 2018 we will be delivering an engaging keynote conference in the morning with specialist headline speakers and then in the afternoon you will be offered the opportunity to choose which of our more focussed workshops you wish to attend. These will be dealing with specific challenges and areas of interest connected with managing the variety of risks for lone workers.
In addition the day will start and end with the bonus of our ‘Ask the Experts’ Session where you can gain direct access to experts who will be able to discuss your challenges or concerns.
