CDM regulation changes came into force from 6th April 2015 which has shifted the Health and Safety regulatory regime for procurement, design, construction, maintenance and operation of construction projects. The conference will show what the changes mean on the ground and how they affect team dynamics and ownership of responsibility.

MGF’s Engineering Director, Steve Hesketh, has been invited to speak at the event in the collaborative innovation section to share his insights from a supply chain perspective. He will be discussing the use of 3D visualisation tools and supply chain led scalable Building Information Modelling (BIM) for the benefits of health and safety as well as the development of new products through industry collaboration and solutions based research.

As a speaker at the event Steve will deliver his presentation along with representatives from around the civil engineering and the health and safety communities, from organisations such as HS2, Crossrail, Mott McDonald, Atkins, HSE and CITB. Speakers will discuss key industry health and safety topics and welcome questions from delegates through a series of panel questions and answers sessions.

The conference takes place at One Great George Street in Westminster, London on the 30th June 2015.
