Safety for Sole Traders
February 7 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pmFree
There’s a lot of talk about business performance: how to drive better leads, how to enhance customer care etc., and all this is great, but what about health and safety?
Join us in February for a networking event with Mary Darlington of Darlington Consulting.
If any of you have an accident and are out of work, you cannot be easily replaced and what happens to your business? So, preventing accidents and injuries is Mary’s main objective. Mary will share the 10 key areas you as sole traders need to manage in order to stay safe and mitigate risks in your business. They include managing lifting and moving, preventing slips, trips and falls, setting up your computer properly, driving safely for work, managing your stress and much more.
With over 30 years’ experience in health and safety across a wide variety of sectors including manufacturing, retail, hospitality, services and not for profits Mary will share some practical approaches to make health and safety a normal part of what you do. Health and safety doesn’t have to be complicated but even if working from home you need to consider it.
Mary has stories to share about how something simple like neglecting maintenance and failure to install adequate and is some cases simple health and safety procedures were ignored, which resulted in causing extensive damages, or in some situations, completely destroying a business or worse, caused serious injuries and fatalities.
On the evening there will be a useful handout to take away, refreshments will also be served and there will be a surprise too so don’t miss out!
