Young people in the workplace
November 21, 2019 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm
Speaker: Stuart Mason, Health & Safety Adviser, Gilbert Giles & Gordon Ltd, Kendal
When young people start their working-life they will be unfamiliar the workplace environment, its associated risks and the behaviour that is expected of them. Stuart plans to cross reference HSE guidance as he uses case studies based on his work experiences since leaving school, followed by looking at how Gilkes manage their apprentices.
Our committee would like to thank Stuart, for agreeing to make this presentation at short notice. Barbara Hockey, Head of Vulnerable Workers Team, HSE had to withdraw due to the forthcoming general election because Government officials are in a period of purdah and have been advised not to do any presentations to external stakeholders during this time.
Members are encouraged to take part in an interactive discussion with speakers during the meeting and to network with other members over tea or coffee and biscuits after the meeting.
There will be a committee meeting after the main meeting.
