Sick Workplaces – Sick Workers
Are health and safety cuts the right medicine?
Saturday November 23rd to Sunday November 24th 2013
Hillscourt Conference Centre, Rednal, Birmingham B45 8RS
“Sick workers face greater scrutiny, but sick workplaces face no scrutiny at all”
If you are sick of work, it could be the work that is making you sick! Too many British workplaces are sick. The symptoms include a culture of bullying, excessive demands and unrealistic expectations, punitive performance management systems, stressed out and frustrated employees, high rates of absenteeism and worrying levels of ‘presenteeism’. This year up to 20,000 workers will die prematurely of heart attacks, cancers or suicide caused by excessive work-related stress. Many more workers will suffer the misery of stress-related mental or physical illness. It is time for this assault on the innocent to stop.
A full programme of speakers, workshops and an excellent opportunity for networking will be available as usual for this next conference. We are pleased to launch the initial details here and now – please access the booking forms and book your places early to avoid disappointment. The forms are available in .pdf or .doc format.
Details of our speaker panel and workshop topics will be posted here in due course. There will be academic, trade union and legal input. Workshops will provide a good opportunity to learn about the impact of adverse treatment of workers and the effects of the dismantling of essential health and safety legislation.
