Health and safety has always been a number one priority for utilities; yet this time of unprecedented transition brings increasing challenges. A perfect health and safety record remains the enduring objective; yet there is still so far to go to achieve this; with 4.2% of employees in the utility supply industry suffering from work-related ill health in 2017-18. This suggests there is definitely scope to innovate and improve; particularly during a business landscape of major change. The 2019 Utility Week Health; Safety and Wellbeing Conference is the only event dedicated to the whole utility sector. It brings together leading health; safety and wellbeing experts and professionals to share their latest thoughts; learnings and examples of best practice from within the industry.
