This event qualifies for CPD and is a great opportunity for networking with other safety practitioners based in and around the Midlands, West and North West of Ireland.

Who should attend

This event will be of invaluable interest to all IOSH Members and particularly anyone who is engaged in or provides advice relating to Water Safety in Ireland.  Particular industries include Construction, and all Rural Industries including Agriculture and Tourism.
