After receiving access to Barbour, I made the first visit within an hour. The following day I had cause to use the service extensively to prepare for a major presentation. The problem is that I didn’t know I was on the job, had no information and no preparation. Barbour came to the rescue! I can safely say that access to the system has saved me time, money and embarrassment.

Webinar: October 2017 Legislation Update

Thursday 5th October | 11:00 – 12.00 (BST)

Every April and October, new amendments and changes to legislation and guidance come into force.

As well as issuing a document to inform you of the upcoming changes, we also ask two leading health and safety lawyers to update the health and safety community on what the changes are, what they mean in practical terms and how the last set of legislation changes are affecting organisations.

The webinar will be led by Dr Simon Joyston-Bechal of Turnstone Law, Anne Davies of Gunnercooke LLP, and Ian Cooke of EEF who will look at the latest health and safety legislation and guidance updates including:

  • How will the new rules fit in with the 2016 sentencing guidelines for health & safety?
  • How are the proposed new sentences calculated?
  • What does this mean for health & safety jail terms?
  • Guidance on areas that could give rise to a successful appeal?
  • How to attach Litigation Privilege to an investigation?
  • The decisions and lessons to be learnt from strict sentencing guidelines?
  • What happens next?
  • And EEF will bring a practitioners perspective to the table.
