Military feel to 21st Capita Symonds Safety Lecture

A unique perspective on health and safety planning and process is promised later this month as General the Lord Dannatt, former head of the British Army, gives the 21st anniversary Capita Symonds Safety Lecture.

Delegates can expect a challenging delivery drawing on Dannatt’s years of experience managing some of the most dangerous military situations and scenarios imaginable - and with it some valuable lessons on safety management for the civilian world.

Balfour Beatty chief executive Ian Tyler has also agreed to give the closing speech and will complete the link to civil engineering and underline the vital role that continual health and safety learning must to play in the modern construction industry.

The free lecture starts at 2pm on 26 September at the Royal College of Surgeons, 35‐43 Lincoln’s Inn Fields, London, WC2A 3PE and will be introduced by Capita Symonds divisional executive director Jonathan Goring. A discussion and open forum question and answer session will follow and be moderated by NCE editor Antony Oliver.

To secure your free ticket email jane.day@capita.co.uk or phone 01342 333295 immediately as places are limited.

  • Congratulations to ICE past president Quentin Leiper for his generous£125 donation to the ICE Benevolent Fund in return for last month’s safety caption competition prize, auctioned by winner Tony Turley. The case of wine is on its way.
