This week Barbour and BIFM announced their first resource pack of 2016 - highlighting new sentencing guidelines for health and safety offences. This latest set of resources is particularly pertinent as it relates to one of the biggest legislative changes to take place in the industry for over 25 years.
The content of this latest set of guidance provides a briefing of the new sentencing guidelines for health and safety offences, corporate manslaughter and food safety offences which came into effect on 1 February on any case sentenced in courts in England and Wales.
Mark Glover, Content Manager at Barbour said: “Our corporate manslaughter Barbour technical guide outlines the changes of this new legislation and how it can affect FM professionals, the pack also includes a recent webinar on the guidelines, presented by respected health and safety lawyers Simon Joyston-Bechal and Kizzy Augustin.
“This new legislation came into force at the beginning of February means that large organisations that have been convicted of the most serious offences can now expect to receive a fine proportionate to the seriousness of the offence and their financial means”
