Respected journalist and broadcaster Cathy Newman will host two days of conversation, debate and inspiration on how health and safety professionals can lead the way to business success.
For the third successive year, she will host the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health’s (IOSH) annual conference in Birmingham, UK.
IOSH 2019 is the “fully-immersive” event of the year for health and safety professionals at all stages of their careers.
They can develop skills and competencies to raise worker protection standards, understand how they can guide their organisation through legislation changes and discover fresh ideas to revitalise health and safety management in their workplace.
Cathy – who is a presenter for Channel 4 News and writes for the Daily Telegraph having previously been Chief Political Correspondent for the Financial Times – hosted the conference in 2017 and 2018.
She said: “I’m really looking forward to chairing the IOSH conference for the third year running. I know there’s an array of interesting speakers, and I’m looking forward to putting them all on the spot once again. See you in Birmingham.”
IOSH Conference Producer Sue Bull said: “A great conference needs a great chair, so it is fantastic that Cathy has agreed to return for a third year.
“She really understands what health and safety is all about, how it impacts on people’s lives and how it benefits business. She is also able to facilitate excellent debate and discussion on the important topics and ensures that the audience can interact with speakers to make it a fully-immersive conference.”
IOSH 2019 is being held at the International Convention Centre (ICC) in Birmingham on 16-17 September. Delegates who book by 19 July will save up to £150 as part of the early-bird offer.
