Webinar: Health and Safety Legislation Update April 2016

Legal experts, Simon Joyston-Bechal, director, Turnstone Law and Anne Davies, special counsel, Withers LLP, will be examining the recent changes to health and safety legislation and guidance, including:

  • Sentencing Guidelines – what could possibly go wrong?
  • Early cases sentenced under the new guidelines
  • New sentencing proposals for guilty plea – why is this relevant?
  • Modern Slavery Act now in force – does this affect us?
  • A look back at CDM

Anne Davies specialises in providing strategic health and safety advice, to organisations. She has been involved in many of the major health and safety cases of the last decade, including having defended McDonalds against group litigation in the now famous ‘Hot Drinks’ litigation, which remains one of the leading decisions under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.Anne is particularly well known for her ability to advise Boards of Directors on proceedings brought by the regulators and the CPS.

She has developed a range of training programmes and tools to help Directors understand their responsibilities, and understand how to deal with crisis situations should they occur. An innovative training programme she runs involves Directors undergoing a simulated interview under caution, so participants can experience the reality of an external criminal investigation. Clients and peers praise her practical and proactive approach in providing this Board-level advice.

Simon heads the Turnstone Law team as Director and has more than 20 years’ experience as a solicitor. Specialising in regulatory defence, he is widely regarded as one of the UK’s leading health & safety lawyers. His experience also covers fire safety, environmental defence, trading standards, product liability, white collar crime, judicial review, human rights and commercial litigation.

By participating in the webinar, attendees can award themselves 1, 2, or 3 CPD points, depending on what they have learned and will be sent a certificate at the end of the webinar.
