Employment lawyers are increasingly being asked to consider health and safety matters in the workplace.  This is a highly specialist area but given the current crisis, and Government return to work guidance, it is more important than ever that employers should be aware of the full extent of their health and safety obligations.  This session will consider the following:

  • What is the scope of an employer’s health and safety obligations?
  • What does a good risk assessment look like?
  • What are the recommended strategies for consultation on risk assessments?
  • When should risk assessments be published?
  • What liabilities does an employer face for health and safety breaches, criminal and civil?
  • What enforcement approach does the HSE normally take?
  • When can individuals be liable for health and safety breaches?
  • Is it ever possible to waive liability for health and safety breaches?
  • What are the extent of an employee’s obligations in relation to health and safety matters?
  • How can an employer deal with an employee who is not co-operative with efforts to maintain workplace health and safety?

There will be live Q&A and you may also  submit your questions to us before the webinar here
