Health and Safety Consultancy Services for SMEs in Birmingham, West Midlands and beyond

Free Aquaculture and Maritime Event for West Coast Fish Farmers
Posted by David Cant on August 23, 2011

As Health and Safety consultants it is important to offer advice and help to people of all industries.  Although Veritas are based in the Midlands, it is important to spread the word of anything relating to everyone all over the UK. It is not very often that a free event comes along, so for all the Scottish readers of the health and safety services blog, here is some news for you.

Aquaculture and Maritime Free Event

The Scottish Aquaculture Industry Forum is holding a free event which is designed to promote excellent aquaculture and maritime safety.  There are a lot of dangers associated in this industry, and which two workers at a fish farm losing their life due to working in confined spaces just last month, we feel this is an event worth making time for.

The Forum consists of several different companies which include:

  • Health and Safety Executive
  •  RNLI
  • Scottish Salmon Producers Organisation
  • Northern Lighthouse Board
  • Maritime Coastguard Agency
  • Crown Estate

All of the above have come together to put on an informative event through provide support and/or help raising the funds to keep the event free.

One Day Full of Valuable Information

During the one day safety event you will have the opportunity to learn about the importance of health and safety in the aquaculture industries. Make sure that you take advantage of free health and safety services such as this one, as you may learn some new skills and ideas which can prevent accidents and deaths from occurring in this dangerous profession.

You will need to ask for an invitation if you are looking to attend this excellent event. During the day on September 6th you will have the opportunity to watch useful demonstrations as well as listening to qualified professionals give health and safety guidance in some of the most problematic areas that come with the job, such as:

  • Manual Handling
  • Confined Spaces
  • Lifejackets
  • Fork Lift Trucks
  • Flares and Life Rafts
  • Cold Shock

Scotland plays a vital role in aquaculture and therefore it is essential to make sure that you are following the right procedures that can help save lived. This free event has been held elsewhere and has had an excellent response.   It is hopeful that by offering these health and safety services for free employees and employers will continue to turn up and work together to improve work health and safety.
