What does 2019 bring for the Charter?
Our second day into the year had us creating the Charter’s 2019 work programme and it’s going to be busy year.
We have over 10 events and workshops already scheduled, the first of which is the Specialist Trade event on the 21st February. We’re really looking forward to this event and it’s shaping up to be a great informative morning, with plenty of down to earth experts on hand and available for Canterbury’s productive tradies to chat with. Of course, I can’t forget to mention our legendary complimentary breakfasts!
This year, our Professional Services Working Group (PSWG) we will be introducing newly developed and pretty cool, Safety in Design fact sheets. The PSWG has done some amazing work on these sheets, so keep an eye out for them. Then later in the year the group will also release some amazing and informative video case studies.
Our Health & Safety Rep’s (HSR) group has some great workshops coming this year, with the first one set for the 22nd March. We will be working on the very topical subject of Worker Participation and Engagement. There will be more details of this event in the next newsletter, but mark your calendars for the 22nd March. You won’t want to miss this event!
The HSR group, also has a Focus Group which is growing as we understand and work towards helping and supporting those H&S Reps on the ground.
I’m very pleased to say, that the Health & Safety Professionals (HSP) group will also be making an appearance once again. This group is full of passionate and enthusiastic individuals who love what they do and love to share their knowledge. Keep an eye out for more info on these guys, it’s coming very soon.
Keeping it relevant!
We want to ensure our events are suited just for you and remain topical, so we need your help. In the coming week you will receive a short 5-6 question survey about our events, (I promise we have made it as painless as possible!) We would appreciate it if you could please take a few minutes to complete it.
For me personally, it is my intention to touch base with all our signatories and endorsees in 2019. If I haven’t contacted you yet and you’d like a visit sooner rather than later, please feel free to let me know. I really am looking forward to meeting and working with all our amazing members.
All-in-all there is a lot happening already for the Charter and it’s only early February. I’ve given you a wee snippet of what’s happening in the Charter for 2019, but there is plenty more to come that I can’t reveal yet and some exciting news too, so watch this space!
It’s shaping up to be an excellent year!
