Conference: Health & Safety In A Changing Legal Landscape

When it comes to investing in effective health and safety management, it is worth remembering that any failings can be costly. In recent times, the legal landscape has changed with significant impact across the industry leading to increased penalties and enforcement. It is now even more important for organisations to ensure the correct systems and controls are in place to provide a safer working environment. Effective Software are hosting an event featuring several expert speakers discussing the impact and future effects of the changing legal landscape and exploring the ever-changing role senior management plays in health and safety leadership.
