16 May at 12.00 pm


Staying up to speed with legislative changes and active campaigns is crucial for workplace safety and compliance.

From the HSE expanding its Asbestos: Your Duty campaign to significant changes in building safety regulations, it’s undoubtedly a very busy time for OHS professionals, with more changes possibly on the horizon.

Indeed, with the looming prospect of a general election, potential shifts in government policies surrounding environmental and health and safety issues could further reshape the compliance landscape.

But it’s not just regulations that employers and OHS professionals must be alert to. With companies prosecuted all the time for breaches of health and safety law, understanding the outcomes of such cases and adapting your own protocols accordingly is crucial to continuous improvement and protecting your people and organisation.

In this one-hour free session, WorkNest’s Director of Health & Safety Services, Nick Wilson, and Senior Health & Safety Lead, Andrew Hall, will provide a helpful update on recent and upcoming legislative changes and what’s on the HSE’s agenda. Our hosts will also distil valuable lessons from recent prosecution cases to help you strengthen your systems and procedures, enhance training programmes, and reinforce best practices.

Given the extensive duties health and safety professionals bear in ensuring their employees’ wellbeing, understanding these evolving expectations and implementing the necessary changes is essential to a proactive risk management approach.
