Thompsons Solicitors is proud to be supporting the 26th National Hazards Conference which attracts hundreds of safety representatives and trade union activists from across the UK.

Organised by the Hazards Campaign, the conference, which is the largest of its kind in the UK, is taking place at Keele University in Stoke-on-Trent between 04 – 06 September 2015.

The theme for this year’s event is ‘Safety reps: reclaiming the health and safety agenda’ and will provide attendees with the opportunity to go to talks and workshops on a range of workplace safety topics, including dealing with risks and making the most of the enforcement system. There will also be discussions on current health and safety challenges and how these can be overcome.

Tom Jones, head of policy at Thompsons Solicitors, said: “Since our foundation, Thompsons Solicitors has been dedicated to supporting trade unions and the labour movement campaigning for better, safer conditions for Britain’s workers. That is still the case today.

“The National Hazards Conference is a vital forum for health and safety experts to come together to share best practice and discuss the latest in health and safety policy and one we are proud to play a part in. There remains much more to be done to eradicate unsafe working conditions and, given the current government determination to undermine workers’ rights, events like this are even more important to ensure that health and safety policy is always front of mind.”
