All workers have a right in law to work in an environment where risks to their health and safety are controlled and monitored. Employers have a responsibility for the health and safety of their employees.
The Health & Safety at Work etc Act 1974 was brought in to achieve these aims and to ensure employers are monitored and appropriate action is taken when breaches occur. The Health & Safety Regulations brought in under the act are subject to constant review to reflect the ongoing needs in the workplace.
Lucinda Dore is an experienced criminal defence practitioner who heads her own firm specialising in private criminal and regulatory law. In this webinar she takes you through the key sections of the Health & Safety at Work etc Act 1974 including the Regulations and implications of breaches of the law to include enforcement notices, prohibition notices and sentencing options.
