The sentencing guidelines for Health and Safety, Corporate Manslaughter and Food Safety and Hygiene offences came into force in February 2016. Under these guidelines, large businesses (with a turnover in excess of £50 million) can face fines of up to £10 million for the most serious health and safety offences and corporate manslaughter fines could reach up to £20 million.
Taking the impact of these guidelines into consideration, we send out a quarterly newsletter to keep you informed on all happenings in the health and safety industry, as we know it can be challenging navigating the way through the most significant changes to health and safety legislation in over 40 years. Our newsletters contain a wealth of information including; articles written by BLM partners, a spotlight section focusing on one member of the team a quarter, insights, details of our training offerings and more.
Please see below the newsletters that have been distributed so far. If you would like to receive these quarterly updates, please sign up here.
