Members of the construction sector are being invited to learn about the latest thinking in health and safety at a free seminar on 27th April. The Jersey Construction Council is organising the breakfast event in conjunction with the Jersey Health and Safety at Work Inspectorate to coincide with World Health and Safety Day.
Organised by the JeCC with support from Jersey Electricity, the event is aimed at anyone who works in the construction sector. Attendees will enjoy a light breakfast before hearing from keynote speaker Colin Myers, Director of Health and Safety, who will talk about the latest trends in the industry.
Two additional speakers will then give their perspectives on the topic. The audience will hear all about best practice from Lee McGurty, a consultant of health and safety specialists Coppolo & Coyde. Finally, Advocate Jeffrey Giovannoni from local law firm Voisin will address the floor with a talk entitled What happens if it all goes wrong? which will be a guide on legal process.
JeCC Board Member Ian Wilson said he hoped the event would serve to highlight the important issues currently facing the industry, against the backdrop of the worldwide health and safety flag day. ‘The Jersey Construction Council is delighted to be putting on this event with our supporters and sponsors. It will be a good introduction to the topic for anyone who works in the industry, irrespective of their role or level, but it will also be a higher level overview for those involved in management and decision-making.’
But he also urged those who hadn’t attended Jersey Construction Council events in the past to get involved. ‘We welcome anyone who works within the construction sector but who isn’t already a member of the JeCC. As well as being relevant to every employee in construction, the seminar gives non-members of the JeCC a chance to meet others from our sector and also to find out more about the work of the Construction Council,’ he said.
The seminar takes place at Mimosa, Liberty Wharf, from 7.30am on 27th April and is expected to close by 9.00am. Anyone wishing to attend should RSVP to Caroline Harrington at firstname.lastname@example.org no later than 20th April.
