How can your business best prepare for an inspection from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or your local council? What are the likely long-term implications of COVID-19 on health and safety in the workplace?
Join Kevin Clancy, health and safety specialist and Partner in our commercial disputes team, and Keir Willox, Partner in our corporate team, for a series addressing the most significant health and safety updates for employers. Our legal experts will share practical guidance on securing the best outcome from a regulatory inspection, provide a round-up of essential developments from the past year, and advise on key considerations regarding COVID-19 compliance as we ease out of lockdown.
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.
Here we offer practical guidance on how, in the face of an investigation, the best outcomes can be achieved. We will discuss:
best practice for a company planning for, or reacting to, an investigation;
what powers an inspector may exercise;
issues that may arising when senior managers are interviewed; and
damage limitation tactics that can be adopted should things go wrong.
