Lord Young to address health and safety forum
Industry leaders will gather to hear Lord Young, Gerald Forlin QC and David Smith, managing director of Zurich Insurance UK Broker Division at the event, organised by Cardinus Risk Management, in conjunction with International Institute of Risk and Safety Management (IIRSM).
Audience members will have the opportunity to debate Lord Young's report, "Common Sense, Common Safety", which was published on 15 October.
Prime minister David Cameron, writing in the foreword to the report, said: 'Lord Young has come forward with a wide range of far reaching proposals which this government fully supports… Now we need to act on this report and I am delighted that Lord Young has agreed to remain as my advisor on these important issues; to work with departments and all those with an interest in seeing his recommendations put into effect.'
Jon Abbott, managing director – ergonomics and safety at Cardinus Risk Management, said: 'Lord Young's review is almost certain to shake up our industry. This thought-provoking debate aims to establish the new principles and the effect they will have on the legal, insurance and safety sectors. By hosting this event Cardinus and the IIRSM hope to provide the knowledge delegates will need to review their strategic and tactical approaches to meeting Lord Young's requirements.'
Cardinus Risk Management will publish a detailed report from the event, together with exclusive video of the presentations on Tuesday 26 October at www.cardinus.com
