Health and safety for charities - what happens when it goes wrong and how to prevent it?

Tuesday, 5 March 2019 - 4:45pm
The Hatton, 51-53 Hatton Gardens, Clerkenwell, EC1N 8HN

With the introduction of 'Health and Safety Sentencing Guidelines' in 2016 and the recent UK prosecutions of charities for health and safety breaches, charities must be aware of the risks to avoid, when trying to be 'health and safety compliant' to avoid significant fines or possible imprisonment.

Kizzy Augustin, health and safety partner, will host a mock interview under caution of a trustee relating to allegations of health and safety breaches - watch as Health and Safety Executive inspector puts the interviewee through their paces and then join the feedback discussion to learn how not to be in that position in the first place!

Learn about:

  • the legal obligations owed by charities to employees and others
  • the impact of the 2016 Health and Safety Sentencing Guidelines
  • Serious Incident Reporting and prosecutions of charities
  • the "top tips" to avoid liability and prevent the risk of prosecution
