We are delighted that you were able to join us at the Health and Safety Executive’s first ever GB conference. Hundreds of organisations from all parts of British industry came together to focus on the collective mission to Help Great Britain Work Well. We hope you enjoyed the day.

The conference keynote speakers were Penny Mordaunt, The Minister of State for Department for Work and Pensions and Martin Temple, HSE Chair.

Delegates heard about HSE’s priorities, had the opportunity to understand HSE’s role within the health and safety system and workshopped solutions to key health and safety issues.

The new ‘Go Home Healthy’ campaign was launched and our sector plans and cross cutting health priorities were showcased.

This site provides you with videos, presentations, blogs and animations from the event that took place at the QEII Conference Centre on 18 September.

You can also make a new, or update an existing commitment to help ensure everyone goes home and safe and healthy from work related activities.
