HOW YOUR INNER “HULK” COULD PROVE FATAL… 

In 2008, Bruce’s now wife Kelly was in a car crash that killed her husband, and took the father of 3 young children away from them. As they were driving home from dropping the children off at school, coming towards them in the opposite direction was a Dutch HGV driver who was driving erratically and pulled out when he couldn’t see what was coming…

Bruce’s story focuses on how the driver being ‘lost in the moment’ shattered a family to pieces, and he explains the effects on his wife and step children, but also on the driver. He also explains simple psychological approaches that help you to be more present and more in control of your emotions. After all, the truth is that HGV driver could have been you or any of your colleagues.

Bruce now runs Huddle Culture, set up to help get the best out of people by enabling them to be more in control of their emotions so they display safer behavioural choices.

STRESS … A GLOBAL EPIDEMIC

Aged 24, Matt had a nervous breakdown which lasted two years. 10 years previous his teenage life was consumed with anxiety and depression. Although an incredibly difficult time, Matt considers his ten years of horrendous thoughts and feelings to be a period of an immense personal transformation. Since 2006 he has remained comfortably on the wellbeing path. Now a practicing therapist, mental health charity trustee and owner of workplace mental health organisation ‘Mindsafe’ Matt has positively helped transform the minds and lives of many people.

This presentation will take a closer look at stress and examine exactly what constitutes it and also how it can cause the most common forms of mental health problems; anxiety and depression.

HIGH FINES COSTING THE EARTH? PRACTICAL TIPS ON AVOIDING AN ENVIRONMENTAL PROSECUTION

In recent years, we have seen some eye wateringly high fines being imposed upon companies for environmental breaches along with the disqualification of company directors.  During this session Kevin will focus upon the powers of the Environment Agency (EA) and will provide practical tips on how to deal with the EA and how to avoid a prosecution. 

Whilst Kevin typically defends companies being investigated for environment, health and safety offences he will also give an insight into his work acting as a prosecutor on behalf of the Maritime and Coastguard Agency when dealing with pollution matters at sea.

FOUR FRIENDS

21st January 2011, four men went to work and never came home again. Matt will openly speak about the traumatic effect of an industrial accident both from a personal and legal side, being a director of Hazegood Construction, a brother and a friend.

He will share this extremely emotive life changing story to encourage Directors and Senior Managers to be more responsible for their actions … the people they employ and also to show how things can quickly escalate and effect not only their lives, families, friends and work colleagues but the same of the employee too.

EXECUTIVE EXPOSURE – DIRECTORS IN THE DOCK

Recent years have seen a marked increase in the number of prosecutions brought against individual directors and managers for alleged neglect of duty in health and safety matters.  Who is in the HSE’s sights?  What level of management is liable to be targeted?  What is the test for criminal liability?  Does the personal duty of care turn on corporate non-compliance?  Do individuals face the reverse burden of proof?  How best can managers avoid prosecution? 

Mark Scoggins will review relevant law and practice.
