Pushing the boundaries: is health & safety the first or last piece of the jigsaw?
Universities are looking to widen and offer ever-diverse teaching portfolios and student experiences, be leaders in cutting edge research and secure greater appeal to funding providers.
In this challenging climate the conference aims to empower delegates to confidently persuade that successful health and safety risk management is integral to these journeys, not an inhibitor or solely to be called upon should the adverse event happen.
This event is for USHA members only with a 52% saving on early bird bookings.

The launch of the revised Guidance for Leadership and Management of health and safety in higher education institutions attracted record attendance.
The launch event was sponsored by Sevron and 165 packed into the Pendulum Hotel in Manchester to hear from a variety of speakers.
They included leading Health & Safety Lawyer Paul Verrico of Eversheds who said the Guidance would either become 'a sword or shield' in our approach... as well as Dil Sidhu Executive Officer from the Alliance Manchester Business School who spoke about the power of influence and persuasion to change behaviour and attitude when it comes to safety and health.
The Guidance document was launched in partnership with UCEA and endorsed by Universities UK and the Leadership Foundation. Over 25% of delegates were non health and safety managers who will utilise the Guidance and also included representatives from AUDE, UCEA and Guild HE.
A print version of the guidance, adjoining poster as well as the Hasmap Toolkit can be found here: http://www.usha.org.uk/member-resources/guidance-documents
