Our annual seminar seminar was held on Wednesday June 28th 2023 in conjunction withPINSENT MASONS LLP (SOLICITORS) at the Swansea.com Stadium formerly the Liberty Stadium SA1 2A. Details of the seminar are below and over 100 delegates attended. Comments from our Chair, Claire Williams (and endorsed by attendees ) was that the seminar was a great success . Everyone took something from the event.
The seminar gave practical advice on how to navigate the immediate period following an incident, together with an understanding of the powers of the regulators, including the right to take documents, interview witnesses and serve enforcement notices.
This equipped attendees with the tools and skills e required to react appropriately to a serious incident , to understand when and how to trigger legal privilege; to conduct a comprehensive investigation and to convert those findings into a quality internal report. Advice was given on essential issues such as managing HSE visits and requests for documents (including your organisation’s internal investigation report).
The day ended with a mock PACE interview – role playing an HSE interview ‘under caution’.
The presenters were Phil Newton (associate solicitor) and Jon Cowlan (health and safety consultant), Pinsent Masons LLP (Solicitors).
