Crane Safety 2019 will bring together decision makers across industries to discuss the dynamic solutions available. Hear insights from leading construction companies about recent projects and practical guidance from the industry regulator.

This is a unique opportunity to learn industry best practice and how your organisation can address the challenges of risk and incident reduction, cost savings vs maintenance and compliance with safety legislation. Hear and develop effective strategies to make your lifting operations as safe, timely and cost-efficient as possible.
