Historically there has been no express duty on directors under the Health & Safety in Employment Act 1993 (HSE). Companies themselves have been primarily liable, and broadly directors have only been personally liable where they had clear knowledge that a situation was unsafe or a clear breach of the HSE.

This has now changed. Recent changes to the HSE are aimed at inducing directors and senior management to proactively manage health and safety. It will not be sufficient for directors and other senior management to instruct lower level management to ensure appropriate provision for workplace health and safety is made. There will be a positive obligation to exercise due diligence and personal liability for breaches.

Join us for this informative 30 minute webinar where Independent Director Giles Ellis will provide an update of recent developments in this area before taking Q & A.

This is sure to be a popular session so reserve your space now.
