(Please note that the number of CPD hours may be subject to change)

"I thought the training was really clearly and well delivered - and interesting!"

This webinar, presented by APIL vice-president Brett Dixon, is part of a 6 webinar series.

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 require every employer and self-employed person to undertake a suitable and sufficient assessment of the risk to their employees and to those who may be affected by their undertaking.

They are required to do this in order to identify the measures they need to take to control those risks and comply with their duties under health and safety regulations.

After this webinar you will understand:

  • How risk assessment works
  • How to argue what risks an employer should have identified
  • What control measures an employer should have been aware of and could have implemented
  • The importance of causation in relying upon a breach of duty in relation to risk assessment
  • Winning cases via the risk assessment duties
  • Using the risk assessment duties to argue that harm was foreseeable and to assist in obtaining disclosure
