Webinar: Osborne Clarke discusses the recent changes in health and safety sentencing in the UK

Written on 30 Mar 2017

On the anniversary of the sentencing guidelines, Osborne Clarke partnered with IOSH to report on how the penalties for health and safety, food safety and corporate manslaughter offences should be dealt with by courts and the outcome of the fines associated to an offence.

In the video below Mary Lawrence and Katie Vickery explore in more detail how the guidelines work, what impact they have had on business over the last year and what businesses can do to guard against the legal risks associated with a prosecution.

In addition to UK businesses who may have been familiar with the enforcement regime change previously, investors and business owners from outside the UK investing in UK business may be assisted by this session to consider how they can assess business risk and the impact of failing to comply.

If you would like to speak further on the matters raised on the recording or the report please contact Mary Lawrence.
