09 September 2010

The 2010 UKA Annual Facilities Conference will take place on Saturday 2 October at the UKA Head Office.

Led by UKA’s lead on facilities and health and safety - Peter Sutcliffe, the conference content is aimed at all UK facility assessors as well as  anyone who may be interested in the process of facilities management in light of the new certification processes.

Delegates on the day will get the opportunity to receive training on a range of useful information that will assist them when inspecting all UKA certified facilities.  This is particularly significant given the revised certification grading scale implemented in April this year that now links to the issuing of race permits.

Likely close: 16:30
