At the event, set to take place at the Health and Safety North exhibition at the USN Bolton Arena on 7 – 8 October, businesses will be able to learn about some of the recent and important changes that have been made to UK health and safety law and its enforcement, along with effective ways of protecting their staff from the risk of suffering work-related injury and ill-health.

The British Health Council has arranged for expert speakers in the regulatory, legal, and health and safety fields, to cover topics such as recent and planned changes to the law and supporting guidance; trends in enforcement and prosecution; and measuring health and safety performance to identify areas for improvement. There will also be a mock criminal health and safety trial highlighting the consequences for employers and individuals who fail to adequately protect their employees and others from the risk of work-related injury and ill health.

Neal Stone, Deputy Chief Executive of the British Safety Council, who has overseen the development of the seminar programme, said: “The seminars will explore some of the key legal and enforcement changes arising from the current and previous governments’ health and safety reform programmes; and seek to improve employers’ understanding of how best to protect workers from injury and ill health, which is estimated to cost UK society £14.2 billion a year.”
