The new sentencing guidelines came into force recently. I am still finding many directors are not aware of this change, which is perhaps one of the most significant in a number of years. Meaning that, amongst other things:
– Sentencing can be based on potential injury even if no one is hurt.
– More significant fines are based on profit and turnover.
We offer both in house and public training for directors and business leaders. For further details just email [email protected]. Alternatively go to our contact us page.
I also cover this on our IOSH Leading Safely courses, the next open course is on the 26th May in Cheadle Hulme – tickets are available here through Eventbrite.
