Workplace Health experts fly in for November Conference
The Workplace Health Leadership Group NI (WHLGNI) is hosting Northern Ireland’s biggest ever Occupational Health Conference over 2 days in November.
Supported by all seven partner organisations that form WHLGNI the Conference will be held on 20-21 November in the La Mon Hotel in Belfast.
Bringing together over 30 (Norther Ireland and GB based) experts in the workplace health field the event will show employers the latest trends in the sector as well as showcase case studies where local organisations have successfully integrated occupational health into their businesses.
The event will also signpost employers to sources of information, links and the latest news in fields as diverse as occupational cancers, respiratory health surveillance, musculoskeletal disorders, welding fumes, mental health, employee wellbeing and other areas faced by employers on a daily basis.
“By creating a positive, safe and healthy environment for employees, you can increase morale, improve your employees’ work-life balance and, in turn, positively impact your business.” said Wilson Lambe, Chair of WHLGNI. He went on to say “there is a lack of understanding of the benefits of tackling workplace health and hence the need to bring in experts to help our local businesses”.
The Conference will:
- demonstrate employee health as a priority against other operational demands,
- focus on prevention as opposed to reactively tackling employee ill health,
- measure the return on investment of any workplace health programme, and
- use best practice working examples to promote improvements in employee health.
