Stephen Bagnall, Bagnalls Group Managing Director, spoke at the recent UNIEP (Union Internationale Des Entepreneurs De Peinture) General Assembly. UNIEP represents around 60,000 businesses, from sole traders through to national painting contractors, in 14 European countries. This year, the UNIEP General Assembly was hosted by the Painting and Decorating Association (PDA), in York. Stephen expressed the increased importance of occupational health and wellbeing in addition to the proactive attitude the industry already has to safety and how we must be aware of the impact that environmental changes have on our work methods and technology used.
Neil Ogilvie, PDA Chief Executive said: “It was a fascinating and productive day. The event overall gave members the opportunity to network and gain insight and ideas to continue improving the painting and decorating industry across the UK and Europe.”
