2023 JOINT ISRP / BOHS WORKSHOP ON ASBESTOS
Our first face-to-face meeting since 2019 will be held at the STEAM Museum in Swindon, United Kingdom on March 29th. The subject of the meeting will be Asbestos. The event is being supported by the British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS). The details of the venue will be available early in February
Fees for the meeting will be £50 for members and £75 for non-members. Corporate members can register more than 2 members at the member rate.
Mesothelioma, the disease which asbestos can cause, is also known as the Swindon Disease. STEAM is sited in the old railway works, the source of the problem. As a further incentive, if you come to STEAM, you get to look at the old steam engines as well!
2023 JOINT ISRP / BSIF WORKSHOP ON RESPIRATORY PROTECTION AND FIT TESTING
A second face to face section workshop has been confirmed for May 18th at the Coventry Building Society Arena (until recently this was called the RICOH Arena), which is about 5 miles north of the City of Coventry in the English Midlands.
This respiratory protection fit testing workshop, which is being jointly supported by the British Safety Industry Federation (BSIF), will cover the last developments in respiratory hazards, fit-testing guidance, standards and technology. The intended audience for this key note event is the fit testing community (and targeted healthcare fit testers), Health & Safety professionals, and agencies, RPE and fit test equipment manufacturers, suppliers and duty holders, and ‘RPE fit’ researchers, amongst others.
Further details on the event will be posted in early March and registration will be available via the ISRP website.
