European Commissioner Lásló Andor To Address IOSH Conference 2013

LONDON, January 28, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

The man responsible for European Union policies on health and safety at work will address occupational safety and health practitioners at a major conference next month.

European Commissioner for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion, Lásló Andor, will present the international keynote speech at IOSH 2013, announced event organisers today.

Mr Andor, who joined the European Commission in February 2010, will provide an EU-wide perspective of the industry and outline his strategic priorities on health and safety issues across the union.

The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), the chartered body for health and safety practitioners, and UBM Live have organised IOSH 2013, which will take place from February 26-27 at London's ExCel.

The event's key focus will be around how health and safety professionals can strike the right balance between promoting wellbeing in the workplace and safe work practices. The event promises to provide professionals with the right tools and knowledge to be truly 'fit for the future'.

Lásló Andor will be joined by more than 60 expert speakers including the Rt Hon Stephen Timms MP, Shadow Minister for Employment; Lawrence Waterman OBE, Head of Health and Safety for the Olympic Delivery Authority; David Ashton, Director of Field Operations at HSE; Dr Richard J L Heron, Vice-President Health and Chief Medical Officer at BP; and Dr Todd Wright, Managing Director of Sellafield Ltd.

IOSH President Gerard Hand said: "We are delighted to confirm Lásló Andor as our international keynote speaker. Having consulted extensively with the industry on our conference programme, many told us they would like more sessions with an international focus.

"The increasingly globalised view of many businesses means it is more important than ever for all health and safety professionals to be fully briefed on regulation and best practice on an international level."
