Building renewables in a safe and sustainable way

About the webinar:

Over the next decade and beyond, the UK and European Union will be taking significant steps towards developing a new energy economy. A wide range of renewable energy technologies will reshape the way we meet our energy requirements and will be a key contributor to individual country’s net zero targets.

Faced with the challenges of this rapid growth and development, we need to ensure the hazards to people, plants, and the environment are managed.

Equally, COVID-19 being declared a pandemic by the World Health Organisation in March 2020 has forced companies to reconsider how they operate – how do we maintain safety performance in a ‘socially distanced’ world?

During this series of webinars, we will be:

  • Providing information on health and safety performance in the renewables sector
  • Addressing ways to mitigate emerging risks and hazards by sharing best practices to ensure safe working for the industry and the communities in which they operate
  • Promoting a strong, sustainable, and continually improved health and safety culture
