Safety in Logistics Conference 2014

The Freight Transport Association are presenting the Safety in Logistics Conference 2014 on 10th June to showcase the latest industry initiatives, best practice advice and the latest developments in enforcement.

With the primary aim of equipping all logistics managers with the latest in health and safety, the conference will be offering a wide range of sessions throughout the day, with a keynote address on the Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) strategic plans including the importance of leadership. Throughout the conference, which will be held at the National Motorcycle Museum in Birmingham, there will be opportunities to listen and engage in discussions of load securing and curtainsiders, preventing vehicle runaways, vulnerable road users and multi-decked vehicles and trailers.

All speakers have the universal aim to ensure that a ‘from the top down’ safety culture is implemented throughout all businesses in the logistics industry.
