The Health and Safety (Offences) Act came into force on 16th January 2009.
Although the Act imposes no new duties, it does significantly broaden the scope for criminal penalties for breaches of existing health and safety legislation. The result is that there is now a real risk that Directors and employees could be imprisoned for breaches of health and safety legislation.
In our article ‘Health and Safety (Offences) Act 2008’ we give further guidance on the Act and how it could affect your business.
Further health and safety guidance is provided via a combination of Griffiths & Armour Risk Management's on-line Risk Management Manual and associated monthly publications. Full access to both is available to all clients.
Upon request, Griffiths & Armour Risk Management can also provide health and safety audits, risk assessments and training services.
