L8 & HSG274...One Year On

Organised by:

Water Management Society in partnership with SCI's Environment, Health and Safety Group

National Motorcycle Museum

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.


HSE's revised ACOP L8 and HSG274 were published over a year ago.

  • What changes have these control documents made in practice?
  • Have any improvements been identified
  • What measures do we need to consider for the future?

A number of new initiatives were developed following feedback from the various stakeholder events in 2014 and these will be reported on by members of the HSE and WMSoc working parties.
