Safety Thirst

If you struggle to get to the big networking opportunities and would love to connect with Women in Health and Safety in your area, then we recommend attending or running a Safety Thirst event.

Informal, non-commercial (you buy your own drinks and snacks) we have held half a dozen so far and more are planned.

Contact wihs@healthy-working.com for more info on how to run one.

In-Person Event at Visa London

Women in Health & Safety are delighted to be hosting an in-person event in partnership with PeopleSafe. The event will be held at VISA’s beautiful London HQ. 

Freddie McGrath will be introducing research which has been undertaken by Peoplesafe relating to how Health & Safety teams can meet the need to provide safety for all their employees no matter their location.

Please note – due to the security required for us to enter VISA offices, we will need to provide an accurate list of attendance.

Disability in the Workplace

The aim of this webinar will be to raise awareness and get people thinking differently about disability in the workplace.

We will be looking at:

  • Definitions of disability
  • The legal position when managing people with a disability
  • The types of reasonable adjustments which may make sense
  • The rationale for employing disabled people 
  • The types of things which organisations can do which make life better

Strategies for Single Parents - for Individuals and Organisations

In the UK there are around 1.8m single parents (making up nearly a quarter of families with dependent children) in addition to those parents who are within a co-parenting arrangement, but who still do a disproportionate amount of the day-to-day childcare. 
Juggling work and family life Is difficult for all working parents, but for employees heading single parent households, striking a balance is even more challenging.

This webinar featuring experienced Olivia Tusler and Crystal Danbury and a career coach – Charlotte Jarrett- Badman discusses the challenges and strategies for individuals and organisations
