Asbestonomy 2024

19-20 June 2024

Melia Barajas Hotel, Madrid

After London and Brussels, the third Asbestonomy conference comes to Madrid this summer. There’s little information at the time of writing, but expect an event that takes more of a political and social approach to asbestos management, taking in ideas, policy and points of view from around the world. You can see what I thought of the first Asbestonomy conference, or click here for full details of the 2024 event.

Safety, Health and Wellbeing Live (South)

2-3 October 2024

Farnborough International

Safety, Health and Wellbeing Live is split into two events in the North and South of England. Both follow a similar format, so workplace safety and occupational health professionals can expect sessions delivered by industry and regulatory experts, panel debates, and multiple opportunities to network.

The Safety & Health Expo (2024)

2-4 December 2024

ExCel London

The Safety & Health Expo’s December 2024 dates come 18 months after the 2023 show, so there should be plenty to catch up on. It’s an unusually late slot for a major conference, and likely to come near both the FAAM and European Asbestos Forum conferences – we hope the dates don’t clash! 

The Safety & Health Expo bills itself as the biggest exhibition in the field. Expect strong opportunities to learn, network, and find health and safety solutions for your business.
