Changes in Health and safety law have the ability to significantly affect your business, but are you aware of what the changes are and when they are due to come into force? Ignorance of the law is no excuse, so businesses who are not aware of changes may face enforcement action.
As well as an overview of pending changes in law, your team will also hear a selection of recent cases from your industry. These show the types of offence that organisations similar to your own have committed and give an insight into the line being taken by the Enforcement Authorities.
Booking a health and safety law update session provides your staff with up-to-date information on developments in this critical area of the law, which in turn helps your organisation to:
- Prepare for implementation of new legislation
- Adapt to changes in existing health and safety law
- Recognise what new or changed health and safety law is of particular relevance to your business
- Take a proportionate and considered response to new or changed law
- Avoid spending too much, or too little, on preparations for new or changed health and safety law, and
- Avoid making the same mistakes as others
- Avoid potentially expensive health and safety enforcement authority action.
Who is this course for?
