27 Jun Engineers Conference
BGS have embarked on their annual Engineers Conferences tour once again, starting in June. With BGS serving the whole of the UK, engineers are based out of a vast network of depots spanning across England, Scotland & Wales. The conferences consequently tour through the different cities taking the programme to the teams locally throughout the summer months.
For 2023’s tour, BGS has re-energised the whole conference making it the most engaging and interactive programme delivered, which also includes the new addition of its own marketplace. The programme looks at safety topics, updates on projects and progress in the company, as well as workshops to share ideas.
As part of the day, BGS have bought on the DHF as a partner to deliver a set of workshops and group activities concentrating on protecting people, the number one company value in BGS. The workshops focus on emphasising residual risk assessment, product safety, engineer safety and, ultimately, customer safety. Having the DHF on board to deliver these workshops brings a strong reminder and added layer of importance to the safety mindset in BGS.
Waqar Sheikh of BGS says, “We are passionate about moving BGS forward, and the conferences provide a dedicated platform for teams to learn about new initiatives and projects, giving them the opportunity to engage and have their say for the future and direction of the company. It’s extremely important to us that our conferences are focused on listening to our teams who have an amazing wealth of experience and knowledge.”
RCS Doors, business partners to BGS, have also joined the tour, engaging with the engineer teams and sharing their developments and knowledge whilst also absorbing first-hand feedback from the teams about their products.
The tour continues on, with the next set of conferences heading to Warrington & Birmingham. Good luck, team!
