Feeling The Pressure Running Your SME?


HOWS Group is running a Health, Safety & Welfare seminar aimed at Owners, Directors and Managers of SMEs, on Tuesday 13th November 2012 from 8.15-09.45am, at The Core Business Centre, Milton Hill, Abingdon, Oxfordshire OX13 6AB.

The Health, Occupational, Welfare & Safety Group (HOWS Group) is a result of the collaboration of three complementary Oxfordshire businesses, bringing together the collective experience of three directors and other industry experts, to provide SMEs with up-to-date health, safety and safety legislation, together with best practices, advice and resources to benefit the health and welfare of their teams and business.

For all businesses to grow they need to pay attention to the Health, Welfare and Safety of staff, and for a busy owner this is yet another area that requires time which is in short supply.  Ignoring it can be an expensive mistake both financially and in team performance, with an estimated cost to industry of £7 billion a year being attributed to getting Health, Welfare and Safety wrong.

For the cost of a coffee and croissant (£5), keep up to date with changes in legislation and topical issues affecting you and your business. Can your business afford to be left in the dark?

If you want to know HOW, join us 4 times a year for a breakfast session with a mix of serious and fun advice, information and guidance for the world of Health, Welfare and Safety all delivered with a practical common sense approach.

The November seminar will cover:

  • Information regarding recent changes to health and safety legislation
  • Advice and resources for people running a business, and the impact on their health
  • Initiatives and developments within the sectors
  • Health screening advice for SME owners
  • A forum for group members to debate any key issues and their impact on the workplace
  • Networking opportunity
