Make sure you are aware of your duties and responsibilities both as an individual and as a business, by attending the seminars. Speakers at the seminar will advise you how to ensure your workplace is safe, whether it is an office or a building site.

You will also hear the latest asbestos guidance from both RICS and HSE.

Find out the practicalities of working with asbestos and the changes to the Government regulations.

A complimentary copy of the RICS Surveying Safely Guidance Note will be available to take with you.
