Introduction

Many companies and their individuals that work in construction may not be fully familiar with their Health and Safety duties and the way in which the changes to UK Health & Safety legislation might impact them.

This highly engaging and interactive virtual classroom seminar will highlight the key risks for contractors, surveyors, suppliers, designers, manufacturers and installers - and discuss how to limit liability and exposure to the risk of prosecution.

You will also get the chance to participate in an ‘interview under caution’ by an enforcing authority and the workshop session will allow you to discuss and analyse how best to deal with an investigation into a Health and Safety incident.

This is a ‘must attend’ for anyone involved in the construction industry who wishes to know more about their statutory Health and Safety obligations and how to put themselves and the companies that they work for in the best possible position to resist scrutiny from an enforcing authority.
