Businesses are invited to find out how to protect themselves against stiffer penalties under the revised Health And Safety Sentencing Guidelines at a free seminar in Leicester on Tuesday 26 April 2016.
Keynote speaker Phil Taylor, Head of Health and Safety for supermarket group Morrisons, will join compliance and legal experts from joint hosts Altius and Howes Percival LLP to explain the updated Sentencing Guidelines.
The expert speakers will advise businesses on what they need to do to comply with what Health and Safety Laws, including CDM 2015, and what measures they can take to ensure they don’t get caught out by bigger fines and possible prison sentences under the revised Sentencing Guidelines.
Nowhere to hide with new guidelines
With stiffer sentencing guidelines for health and safety, corporate manslaughter and food safety and hygiene offences, now introduced in England and Wales, organisations should tighten up health and safety compliance and push it further up the board room agenda, says Gary Plant, Managing Director of health and safety compliance specialist Altius.
He continued: The new guidelines mean there is nowhere to hide when it comes to facing up to health and safety breaches and even if procedures and policies are robust in your own organisation, you could face exposure from suppliers. It is business critical for organisations to scrutinise their health and safety policies, training and compliance, and ensure that risk is assessed across the entire supply chain and standards are applied and continuously monitored.”
The Information on Revised Health And Safety Sentencing Guidelines half day seminar (10am to 2pm) will take place at Howes Percival’s Leicester offices.
