The good news is that around 7 out of 10 employers in the logistics industry are investing in health and safety training for their staff. The bad news is that it isn’t always the right training for the business. With an acute skills shortage in the transport, warehousing and logistics sectors, it is more crucial than ever that Health and Safety Leaders are up to speed on the latest developments and can deliver training that the business really needs.
To address this, the agenda at Talent in Logistics Conference on 22nd June 2017 includes a number of free seminar sessions specifically designed to help Health and Safety Leaders deliver effective training, and improve safety and efficiency in the business. It also provides a valuable professional development opportunity for Health and Safety Leaders in the logistics sector.
3 key seminar sessions not to be missed include:
- The New Health and Safety Executive Strategy: How Can Logistics Training Support the Strategy?
- Musculoskeletal Challenges: Can Better Training Help?
- Closing the Disability Employment Gap: How logistics Can Help
The free seminars will give Health and Safety Leaders up to date information on the topics that are affecting training programmes in logistics today, or will be in the near future. The full agenda can be found here or book your free conference place now.
The event will also celebrate the importance of Health and Safety Leaders in the warehousing, transport and logistics sectors at the Talent in Logistics Awards 2017.
