When & Where
North West Safety Initiative and the HSE
The North West Safety Initiative was established to ensure that adequate financial resources would be available to enable the North West Construction Safety Group, The Merseyside and Cheshire Construction Safety Group and the CDM Duty Holders Support Group to achieve their aims and objectives without putting individuals at personal financial risk.
The broad principal is to facilitate projects that improve health and safety in the construction industry, by funding schemes that are generally self funding beneficial to group members whilst ensuring the viability and continuity of the North West Safety Initiative.
This event is in partnership with the HSE
