The latest health and safety news
2015 into the start of 2016 saw some big changes to health and safety legislation, with the move to CDM 2015 and the changes to the sentencing guidelines for health and safety, corporate manslaughter and food safety offences.
These legislative changes may affect you and your business and you may need to implement changes, update your workforce and revise relevant documentation.
Take this quiz to find out how much you know about upcoming legislative changes.
These questions are based on the recent Legislation Update for April 2016 and beyond, and on resources available on the Barbour EHS Service (namely the guide Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems), and on the Sentencing Council’s definitive guideline on Health and safety offences, corporate manslaughter and food safety and hygiene offences.
This quiz is based on information that can be found in the Barbour suite of resources under the topic ‘Mental Health in the Workplace’.
By answering the questions below, practitioners can award themselves CPD credits. One, two or three credits can be awarded, depending on what has been learnt – exactly how many you award yourself is up to you, once you have reflected and taken part in the quiz.
Please note: There may be more than one correct answer to a question, and further reading may be required to correctly answer the questions.
Thank you for taking part in the Legislation Quiz for April 2016. Please fill in this short form to find out your score and to be emailed the correct answers and explanations.
Thanks for emailing the answer and background to each question, I found this very useful and learnt some new information.
Everyday is a learning curve. Nice little quiz caught me out on some of the questions. Worth a go😜
Shame half questions are actually nothing to do with H&S.
The only H&S were on detail of sentencing guidelines – not relevant to most as
a) you have to be caught having already done something bad
b) you would presumably have a lawyer to deal with the sort of detail of the questions – and
c) it will all be too late by then as whatever it is has happened, and so knowing the ins & outs is completely academic.
(more than one answer may apply).
Thanks for the quiz. I am always striving to improve my knowledge.
Good quiz thankyou, my only comment being on 1 question, as I understand it ISO 45001 may not replace OHSAS 18001, are they not different awarding bodies (ISO and OHSAS), anyway, thanks, its always good to refresh your knowledge
Hi Carl, you’re right – it’s expected that most organisations will move across to the new standard as it has additional benefits. We’ll know more about whether it will be replacement later on in the month. I’ve updated the question and the answer to reflect this. Thanks, Roz
Very informative quiz. Leaning something new everyday. t

Thanks for the questions and answers emailed to me.
