(PRWeb UK) October 22, 2010
INSURANCE and health and safety professionals will get their first opportunity to engage with Lord Young on Monday, following the publication last week of his report Common Sense, Common Safety.
Lord Young will speak to an invited audience in the Great Hall at the Chartered Institute of Insurers on October 25. This will be his first appearance in a seminar environment and industry experts are keen to debate the radical reforms he has proposed.
Gerard Forlin QC, who will also speak at the event, said, “The UK has the best health and safety record in the world. We must be very careful that this pole position is maintained. Nothing must jeopardise it.
“That said, it is true that certain aspects of health and safety legislation and, in particular, how certain cases are investigated, funded and brought may need to be reviewed. Getting the correct balance will be an extremely difficult task to achieve. We all need to work together on this important task.”
Jon Abbott, managing director – ergonomics and safety at Cardinus Risk Management, which has organised the event, said, “Everyone I have spoken to is looking forward to what is sure to be a thought-provoking debate. Cardinus and its co-hosts, the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management, are pleased to be able to provide this forum to discuss the proposals and how they may affect the legal, insurance and safety sectors. We are facing a shake up of our industry and the debate on Monday is where the story will start to unfold.”
Cardinus Risk Management will publish a detailed report from the event, together with exclusive video of the presentations on Tuesday October 26 at http://www.cardinus.com
