Health & Safety Forum

September 13, 2023
09:00 - 11:00

Napthens is proudly sponsoring the Health & Safety Forum held by East Lancashire Chamber of Commerce.

This event is aimed at anyone responsible for health and safety in the workplace. It will also be of interest to CEOs, business owners, senior managers, HR, and training managers.

Technology is encountered more and more in everyday life.  It is also becoming more evident in our working life and can assist those with health and safety responsibilities.

At this next event, our Head of Health & Safety Neil Hughes-Hutchings, will look at the benefits of using third party apps and how they can also be adopted by other departments, where periodic checks or inspections are carried out.

Neil will also explain how our AfterAthena Hub app provides clients with a way to network with likeminded individuals and access health and safety information and resources.

Also speaking at the event is Deyrick Allen, Managing Director of IoT Hotizon Ltd who will be explaining how in a world driven by innovation, technology and safety intertwine; where training isn’t a task but an experience, where preparation meets innovation, and where safety becomes second nature. Deyrick will also touch upon how virtual reality can evolve into an immersive classroom, fueled by 3D models that replicate real-world settings.
