Railway Environmental Forum 2015

14 September 2015

ESG, the UK’s leading provider of testing, inspection and compliance services, will be hosting a Railway Environmental Forum, reflecting on the current issues affecting the rail sector, from changing legislation to environmental and health and safety issues.

Date: 24 September 2015

Time: 10:00 to 15:00

Location: London Underground Stratford Depot and Training Centre

Speakers: Mick Pratt, water treatment commercial director, ESG; Denis Morgan, asbestos divisional technical manager, ESG; David Wright, occupational hygiene team leader, ESG.

The annual forum will this year be held on 24 September 2015 at London Underground’s Stratford depot, the largest on the network, and will not only include an exclusive tour, but also a training session at the Track Hazard School.

The event builds on the success of ESG’s previous railway forums which have been designed to focus on topics of interest to all those working in the rail sector, including those from train operating companies, track and infrastructure operators, rail contractors and facilities managers.

ESG’s Noelyn Allen, business development director, Built Environment Services, will chair the event, and attendees will hear speakers discuss a variety of hot topics, including:

  • Hand-arm vibration syndrome, which continues to be an area of concern for the ORR (David Wright, occupational hygiene team leader, Built Environment Services, ESG)
  • Developments in water treatment and guidance on the prevention of legionella (Mick Pratt, water treatment commercial director, Built Environment Services, ESG)
  • An update on asbestos legislation and how this applies to the rail industry (Denis Morgan, asbestos divisional technical manager, Built Environment Services, ESG)

In addition, lunch will be provided and there will be various networking opportunities, providing attendees with the chance to discuss key industry developments.
