New for the Health and Safety '10 - North exhibition is a dedicated 'Plant and Machinery Safety' zone where visitors can source the latest in products, services and consultancy from the most forward thinking companies in this field. The zone, which is sponsored by the Laidler Group - CE marking and machinery safety experts - also provides attendees with a number of free practical and educational seminars.

Along with the Laidler Group, zone partners, Wieland Electric - a leader in the field of pluggable connections for building system technology and industrial automation - and Rockwell Automation - provider of power, control and information systems and services - will be presenting seminars on topics relevant to professionals working specifically in the area of plant and machinery safety.

With 3M, Ansell, Arco and DuPont as event partners, Health and Safety '10 - North will take place at The Reebok Stadium in Bolton on the 13th and 14th October 2010. It offers a free seminar programme, free exhibition and free parking, enabling people at all levels to find the latest in health and safety information, products, services and consultancy all under one roof.

One of the main attractions for visitors to the event is the free conference and seminar programme which includes sessions organised by the event's official educational partner, the British Safety Council (BSC). The seminar topics included have been specifically chosen by BSC to provide maximum benefit to the visitor and, at Health and Safety '10 - North for example, this includes a new seminar presented by Kevin Bridges and Zoe Betts from Pinsent Masons LLP giving a health and safety law update entitled: 'The significance of setting the right tone at the top'.

The seminar aims to provide the audience with an insight into new risks facing businesses due to developments in health and safety law in recent years, including Corporate Manslaughter (new sentencing guidelines, personal liability of directors and senior management) emphasising the significance of setting the right tone at the top of the organisation and giving some simple legal preventative measures organisations can take as part of an incident response protocol.

In addition, Mark Thomas, policy advisor of the Health and Safety Executive's (HSE) Slips, Trips and Falls Team will give a presentation on: 'Slips and Trips: Can the problem be solved? Some success stories'. It will cover how to tackle slips and trips in the workplace, outline key issues that contribute to these accidents, describe HSE action in these areas and detail available guidance. It will also give some case studies from a variety of sectors that have had success in reducing the number of these accidents.
