Safer By Sharing Conference Presentations.

Safer by Sharing Webinar 2023 - Mental Health
Thursday 12 January 2023

MPA ‘Safer by Sharing’ webinars are available to all, free of charge and accredited for CPD. The ‘Safer by Sharing’ sessions help to facilitate the transfer of health and safety knowledge and skills throughout the MPA membership.

Managing mental health in the workplace can be a daunting and challenging prospect with many people admitting that they don’t know where to start. However, most people understand that there is a legal, financial and moral case for tackling this important topic.


HSE is the regulator for majority of business activity in the minerals product sector. The new HSE 10-year strategy, ‘Protecting People and Places’, could not be more explicit in terms of HSE’s focus on managing a worsening trend of ill health with a particular focus on managing mental health and stress.
