This year's British Glass Annual Health & Safety Conference and Exhibition (jointly with Glass & Glazing Federation) is to be held at the Mere Golf and Country Club in Knutsford on the 2nd November 2005.

The theme this year is Worker Involvement.

“Companies that seek to make their safety management systems more effective see that involving their workers improves safety performance,” said Declan Moore, British Glass’ Health & Safety Manager. “Partnerships are essential for health and safety performance to be successful and involving the workforce means that health and safety becomes everybody's business.”
Guest – and mystery - speaker this year will be the European Minister for Social Policy, Prof. Garreth Class. He will be discussing proposed amendments to related European directives that are likely to affect the industry over the coming year. He will also be presenting the prestigious Glass Charter Awards in the afternoon, now in their third year.
The keynote speaker is to be Stewart Barnes, Divisional Director of HansenGroup. He will be speaking on an organisational approach to worker involvement. Stewart is a guest lecturer (specialising in leadership, culture and change management) on the full-time MBA and Change Management courses at Lancaster University where Stewart gained his MBA in 2002.

(AGC) of Japan has solved problems in lowering the defect-free rate for the production of fifth- and sixth-generation (5G, 6G) glass substrates, and is expected to tap the market with products with higher price competitiveness in 2006 to grab more market share in the 6G substrate businessIn addition, Wang added, the aggressive capacity added by both Corning of the U.S., the world's No. 1 substrate supplier, and AGC, the No. 2, will lead to price drops for glass substrates and will especially benefit TV panel makers such as AU Optronics Corp. (AUO) and Chi Mei Optoelectronics Corp. (CMO) in TaiwanCurrently, Wang pointed out, a 6G substrate is priced at about 27,000 to 30,000 Japanese yen, about 1,000 to 2,000 yen lower than in the third quarter of 2005.
