Health & safety campaigner Louise Taggart, whose brother was killed in a preventable work-related incident, will speak in Aberdeen about the need to reduce serious injuries and fatalities in the workplace.
Michael Adamson, who was 26 years old at the time of his death and engaged to be married, was an experienced electrician but died after being electrocuted when he cut through a cable that was marked as being out of use, but which had not been securely isolated.
Angered by the failings of his employer to protect Michael, Louise has dedicated her life to educating businesses on how to better protect employees and contractors on site.
She leads a masterclass with experienced health & safety, employment law and HR specialists, Law At Work (LAW), where she will share Michael’s story and provide firms with a strategy to meet legal regulations.
The three-hour long session will focus specifically on the safety of third-party contractors, and where responsibility for their safety lies. It will also look at common failings that may lead to businesses coming under investigation as well as what a safety culture means within an organisation.
