    We are pleased to welcome you to our eighth Annual Environmental, Safety & Health Conference, taking place in our London office on 5 June 2019 – World Environment Day!

    Compliance policies and procedures are constantly changing and increasingly under scrutiny. They may be impacted by external and internal forces, including incident investigation and management; approaches to enforcement by national and local authorities; and, increasingly, by public pressure and scrutiny. Join us as we consider the impact of these forces in practice and how best to manage them when implementing and maintaining effective compliance strategies. These must be anticipated and addressed in order to ensure safe and healthy workplaces in the future.
