USHA Spring Conference & AGM 2017
This will be on the 25- 27th April at the Hilton Leeds City Hotel - hosted by USHA and the University of Leeds.
The overall conference theme is: 'wake up to the new health & safety culture - the reality check'
We will be looking at the changing landscape of Health and Safety and asking can we be more flexible and adaptable?
The spotlight will be on: overseas partnerships, agile working, an aging workforce, smarter working, efficiencies to grow and we'll look at the way we deliver a service - should it be a central or faculty resource?
Bookings will open for this event in the autumn.
