How a business prepares for or reacts to the intervention of a regulatory inspector can be significant in determining how such an investigation is resolved and whether it leads to criminal or civil proceedings.
Our second webinar in the series will offer practical guidance on how, in the face of an investigation, the best outcomes can be achieved. Consideration will be given to how a company plans for, and reacts to, an investigation, what powers an inspector may exercise, issues arising when senior managers are interviewed, and the damage limitation tactics which can be adopted should things go wrong.
These webinars will be of interest to health and safety professionals in both the public and private sectors, including:-
- Health and safety advisers;
- Project managers and consultants;
- In-house legal advisers;
- Senior managers exercising a compliance/regulatory role,
- Client directors and other client representatives.
