Events round up: Keep on top of latest risk management issues

MORE than 200 delegates will gather at the Fleet News Risk in Fleet conference to hear in-depth guidance on some of the latest risk management issues.

Among the briefings will be a detailed look at the case of the firm that encouraged a culture of long hours which has been found liable for a road accident in which one of its workers was paralysed.

Michael Eyres, who was flung from his van after momentarily falling asleep at the wheel, can now sue the company where he worked as a kitchen fitter for damages expected to exceed £1 million.

Much of the day will be focused on risk management and reducing fleet accidents but there will be a range of other subjects covered, including the financial challenges created by the budget, environmental risks, and the financial risks of the smoking ban.

Speakers will represent organisations such as HM Revenue & Customs, PricewaterhouseCoopers, IAM Motoring Trust, Thatcham, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents, Fleetsolve, Smokefree England and Tesco and will include a number of Fleet News Award winners.

Legal expert David Faithful will be speaking in a session called Corporate Manslaughter Bill and Beyond.
