Safer By Sharing Conference Presentations

To help achieve Zero Harm, all employees and contractors need to be involved in sharing knowledge and experience as a contributor to developing and maintaining personal competence.

British Precast's Safety & Health Awareness Days (SHADs) are an effective means of sharing good practice and provide learning through practical demonstrations and formal presentations. 2 SHADs are held each year – one aimed at operatives on site, and the other at management and senior personnel.These enable members to gain new perspectives on a variety of topics. Guest speakers from the  HSE, equipment manufacturers and hauliers are augmented by British Precast members sharing their own initiatives and developments.

For more information about the future programmes, please contact British Precast's David Squires - see dates below.

British Precast members are also invited to attend the Safer by Sharing mini-seminars run by the MPA.

For information about future programmes, please contact MPA’s Jane Blake (English Regions) or David Harding (Wales)
