  • Health & Safety

Health and safety obligations apply to a wide range of organisations – and, as prosecutions and fines for health and safety breaches continue to rise, organisations in the charities and third sector need to be prepared. So what are your responsibilities and what could happen if there is a health and safety incident?

In this seminar we will:

• explain the health and safety responsibilities of the organisation, office bearers and senior staff;
• explain the civil and criminal legal processes which can follow a health and safety incident;
• provide an update on prosecution trends and potential penalties;
• discuss what you need to consider pre- and post-incident to effectively deal with a health and safety breach.
