Company Directors and Senior Managers: Responsibilities for Workplace Safety and Health

Company Directors and Senior Managers

 

Objectives

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Following the enactment of considerable volumes of Health and Safety legislation in the past decade and in particular the:-

 

  • General Application Regulations 2007, and
  • Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005

 

The Health and Safety Authority (HSA) has issued ‘Guidance for Directors and Senior Managers’ which outlines their responsibilities for workplace Safety & Health.  See the recent Press Release from the HSA below:-

“The 2005 Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act marked a new departure for health and safety in the workplace.  An important element of that legislation is the new responsibilities it imposes on company directors and senior managers who can now be held personally responsible for organisational breaches of health and safety law*.  Anyone convicted of a serious breach of the legislation could face a fine of up to €3m or two years imprisonment.  These are significant changes”, stated Mr. Martin O’Halloran, CEO of the Health and Safety Authority (HSA).

Consultants from CRC will provide advice on how to practically apply the intent of this guidance and how it dovetails with corporate governance and the overall risk management agenda within organisations.

 

Duration

Half day

Outline Content

It will detail:

  • §What those responsibilities are in light of current legislation
  • §Examples of relevant case law
  • §How to implement a system to improve compliance
    • The necessity for performance and not just paperwork

 

NB: The definition of “employer” as set out in the 2005 Act includes not only the person who has a contract of employment with an employee but also a person under whose control and direction and employee works.  In many instances a director may be both an employer and an employee of the undertaking.  The legal interpretation of a “person” also covers the entity within which the work is carried out.
