ISTR AUTUMN SYMPOSIA

‘50 years of HASAWA: What's that ever done for me?’

Wednesday 20th - Thursday 21st November 2024

To recognise the 50th Anniversary of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 this year's symposium theme focuses on selected sections of the Act. Our Speakers from higher education, private and public sectors will explore their continued relevance in our workplaces today.

Bringing members and guests together in Sheffield we meet at the Kelham Island Museum which is currently celebrating 300 years of industry in the city. It is home to the River Don Engine, the most powerful working steam engine in Europe.

Sheffield is famous for its manufacturing heritage pre-dating the HASAWA by at least 250 years. Our speakers will focus on Sections 2, 4, 5, 7, 13 and 15 of the Act.
