In its 21st anniversary year, the organisers of Moving & Handling People are delighted to announce that the Conference will be additionally taking place in coordination with Naidex on Wednesday 29th & Thursday 30th April 2015 at the NEC. ‘Safeguarding standards, sharing the vision,’ will offer delegates two full days of CPD-accredited training based on a mixture of practical workshops and plenary conference sessions.
The new venture will enable delegates to visit key suppliers to the industry whilst completing two full days of specialist training and offers them the chance to experience the majority of the content of the January flagship event at an alternative to the London venue.
Two keynote plenary sessions are titled: ‘Milestones and Millstones’ which will review legal cases and current legislation in terms of the implications for the future of moving and handling people and ‘Is it raining out there? Understanding the safety climate’ will explore issues surrounding the importance of culture and climate and how to foster an effective system.
Topics and speakers at the two-day packed training event will include four workshops including a practical workshop on improving confidence in handling plus-sized clients and one dealing with avoiding adverse incidents in everyday practice. The Conference is renowned for its hands-on practical approach which involves demonstrations of equipment in a highly interactive and enjoyable format.
All delegates attend four workshops and two keynote plenary sessions along with the Open Forum held at the close of day one in which delegates are encouraged to bring along their current issues to be handled live by the expert panel.
DLF is also delighted to announce that it will be Naidex’s Charity of the Year 2015 benefiting from the event’s support and donations.
Delegate bookings and further information will be available online soon via a dedicated website www.movingandhandlingpeople.co.uk, The April Conference costs £275 + VAT representing great value for money; entry to Naidex is free.
