Understand the common legal pitfalls and how to avoid them

The steps you take in the hours and days that follow a serious health & safety incident are critically important, yet also exceptionally difficult to manage.

All too often we see the same mistakes being made that can create unnecessary legal and reputational risks for the organisation and the individuals within it.

The wrong decisions can affect the direction of the investigation and can increase the potential for enforcement action.

Our Mock Investigation event is a practical session centred around an evolving scenario. Step by step we take you through an investigation that has not gone well, and we show you why so many problems occurred and how they could have been avoided.

This session is useful for leaders, H&S professionals and line managers.

We will cover

  • The immediate aftermath – setting priorities and actions
  • Police and HSE Powers
  • Witness Interviews – what you need to consider
  • Legal Privilege – Protecting your investigation report
  • Communications – including the press
  • The Penalty – Fines and other possibilities
