SAL ‘A Night at the Museum’

This years annual British Occupational Hygiene Society (BOHS) conference was held at the Hilton Hotel in Deansgate, Manchester. The conference promoted the science and practice of addressing health hazards in the workplace and was attended by Researchers, Practitioners, Regulators and Health and Safety Professionals from all over the world.

On the first evening of the conference, SAL hosted a networking event for conference attendees at the Manchester Museum. Refreshments in the form of drinks and canapes were provided, and music from a trio of stringed instruments added to the ambience of the venue.

The Manchester Museum houses many impressive exhibits, including ‘Stan’ the Tyrannosaurus Rex, uncovered in South Dakota in 1992. Stan’s skull is one of the best preserved of any Tyrannosaurus Rex ever discovered. A 10 inch high stone statue in the museum, that belongs to one of the most impressive collections of ancient Egyptian artefacts in the UK, made the news recently, appearing to move of its own volition around it’s glass display case.

The evening attracted over 130 attendees and provided an opportunity to network amongst the exhibits in the impressive and remarkable museum surroundings.

Next years Annual Conference will be held at Nottingham Trent University.
