CN Plant 2008

CN Plant 2008 - 6th March National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham

"Far too many construction workers are dying. The vast majority of these deaths are preventable and are caused by lax safety and careless bosses" Alan Ritchie, General Secretary, UCATT, January 2008

There have been 51 deaths since April 2007 alone. The situation is dire and with further increases in health and safety standards and the implementation of the corporate manslaughter bill, we must take a pro-active approach to reducing on-site accidents. Construction News' Plant conference is now in its fifth year, and is established as the leading forum for the plant industry. It is the only event to focus on the issues really affecting plant. Safety is very much on our agenda and there are streamed sessions at this year's event to enable you to concentrate on what matters to you.

Speakers and topics include:

  • Paul Phillips, Chairman, CPA Crane Tower Interest Group examining how the industry is responding to concerns about tower crane safety
  • Carol Grainger, Workplace Transport Programme Manager, HSE: telling you what you need to know about HSE's falls from vehicles programme
  • Paul Burnley, Lawyer with DLA Piper, explaining the impact of the Corporate Manslaughter legislation, which comes into force in April

Plus these leading speakers

  • Trevor Gamble, Chairman, CPCS describing the changes to the CPCS operator scheme
  • Cross-industry panel discussing green issues on site
  • Allan Wilen of Emap Glenigan, forecasting where the construction work will be found the next few years

Plant 2008 is the only conference to cover legislation, health and safety issues for both small and large plant, theft, staff training and developing sustainable work practice. As always, it will be attended by the leading players in the industry today. Can you afford to miss out?
