Health and Safety: Understanding & Implementing Legislation (4909)
Health and safety legislation does not stand still, so those with responsibilities for compliance in the workplace should ensure they remain up to date with the knowledge and sound understanding of any changes.
Most of the UK legislation follows European Directives, either by amendments to current law or new regulations; since 2005 there have been introductions of both.
One problem for those in the workplace is realising the full meaning and implications of new or amended legislation – exactly what it requires – how it differs from previous legislation, who might be affected by it, and who is responsible for its implementation? Typically, “what does it really mean for ME?”
For Example; Do you understand fully the September 2011 reporting requirements? Which incidents need to be reported through the new suite of on-line forms (7 options exist) and which remain eligible for notification by phone?
This intensive and informative one-day workshop is intended to highlight recent and proposed changes in health and safety legislation and provide guidance on good practice, and how providers and employers can best meet the latest requirements.
The Government is committed to reducing the burden Health and Safety Legislation places on UK business, changes and updates will be covered within the workshop as and when they are introduced.
To help delegates recognise the health and safety legislation changes that have been or are about to be made, and the effect upon them, their organisation, partners, customers and learners. As a result of attending this workshop, delegates will:
- recognise health and safety legislation that has recently changed
- be aware of new legislation that has been introduced
- understand why the changes were made or new legislation introduced
- associate the changes with practices within their own areas of operation
- be able to ensure compliance with the new requirements
Who would benefit from attending this workshop?
The workshop is designed for all managers and HR teams as well as teachers, trainers and learning support teams who have to both comply with and cascade health and safety legislation to learners.
This workshop provides the latest information and advice on key health and safety legislation that may impact on your organisation.
Delegates will be reminded of the current/previous requirements before being introduced to the latest changes that have been made or are pending; in so doing participants will explore the impact and effect the changes will have for learning providers, employers and learners.
