Next Meeting – Monday 3rd April 2017
AGM & Legal Update
Please see below the invitation and agenda for the upcoming AGM.
Please also see the minutes of last years meeting for approval at the AGM
Following on from our AGM we are extremely lucky to have our returning legal expert giving a presentation on what’s new in the world of health and safety law. As well as helping to keep you up to date with current changes (such as the 2016 H&S Sentencing Guidelines and the Guidelines for Guilty Pleas) and the impact they are having on businesses, Kizzy will also touch on how the challenges that safety professionals face and what we need to do to protect ourselves from individual prosecution.
Kizzy is a senior criminal regulatory lawyer at Pinsent Masons, who specialises in the defence of health and safety matters. She is a Solicitor-Advocate with higher rights of audience, which means that she appears regularly as an advocate in court proceedings and Coroners’ inquests. Kizzy has significant experience in defending companies and senior employees (particularly in the construction sector) in corporate manslaughter and serious health and safety prosecutions, including representing one of the engineers accused of manslaughter and health and safety breaches in the Hatfield rail crash trial in 2005.
As well as being one of SHP’s editorial advisors Kizzy reached the pinnacle of her career when she was elected onto the committee for the best safety group in the UK.
Kizzy’s talks are always popular so book now to avoid disappointment.
