Event description

Description

This is one of a series of free partnership events run by the industry for the industry, as part of the UK-wide Working Well Together (WWT) construction industry and safety initiative.

The event aims are to raise awareness of the safety risks when penetrating the ground. Whether it’s simply to better understand ground conditions or why ‘shallow’ or ‘deep’ excavations fail, the event provides the latest advice and guidance. There will be opportunities to meet experts in the field of groundworks and to seek advice. Importantly, this event is meant to be interactive, providing attendees with the opportunity to view a series of ‘practical’ sessions with equipment both in and out of the ground on a mock ‘live’ site. If you dig in the ground, supervise or manage groundworkers, manage a contractor or are self-employed then this FREE half day event is for you.

Please submit any additonal questions to sarah.ough@hse.gov.uk

We look forward to seeing you at this event
