IWEA Health & Safety Conference 2019

22nd May 2019

Mount Wolseley Hotel, Tullow, Co Carlow

As in previous years the IWEA Health and Safety Committee have a conference programme which will ensure excellent return on investment and useful practical information that will create efficiencies for both site based professionals and management.
This year’s content will focus on

  • A real life impact of a fall from height 
  • Offshore wind
  • Manual handling
  • Working under suspended loads
  • Driving for work
  • Working at heights 
  • Emergency preparedness

The HSA’s new CEO Dr. Sharon McGuinness will be giving insights on HSA Strategy and RUK’s Rhys Jones will be outlining good practise emergency preparedness based on considerable work done by RUK in recent years.

As always our focus is on practical learning outcomes for delegates with a panel of experts including the Health & Safety Authority speaking and offering clarifications on a range of topical issues.
With safety at the cornerstone of our industry and with continued success as the industry grows and moves offshore, this event cannot be missed!
The event has gone from strength to strength each year and its popularity has seen it grow into the premier Health & Safety event in the Irish Wind Industry for both safety professionals, technicians, management and leaders across all functions of organisations.

We look forward to seeing you there. 


Health & Safety Conference Testimonials 

“Just a note to say a big Thank you from GE to the IWEA team on another fantastic H&S Conference. My colleagues, customers and others who attended are still talking about it which is great as I received a number of calls and emails since then to pass on a thank you to Paul. I believe Wednesday marked a turning point for the industry when it comes to Health & Wellbeing”. – Michael Donnelly, EU Services EHS Leader, GE
