Asbestos risks highlighted.
The North Wales Working Well Together (WWT) group, which includes the Health and Safety Executive, will be providing practical demonstrations as well as presentations on some of the main safety issues facing building firms.
Issues will include work at height and risk assessments. The event also coincides with the launch of the next phase of an HSE campaign aimed at raising awareness amongst tradespeople of the dangers of asbestos, and there will be a demonstration related to asbestos management.
HSE Construction Inspector Debbie John said: "Earlier this year, HSE carried out spot checks on sites where refurbishment was being carried out, and the main issue identified was failure to manage the risks from working at height.
"There were also numerous other risks, including asbestos, that should have been accounted for in risk assessments."
The event is being held at Coleg Menai Construction College, Ffordd Penmynydd, Llangefni, Anglesey, starting at 8.30am.
