Health & Safety Legislation
One Day Training Course


Irrespective of whether a company is involved in manufacture or is a service organisation, it has a statutory obligation, under the Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act, 2005, to operate in a way, which safeguards the health and safety of its workforce. This one-day course will enable participants to assess the implications of the Act and its associated regulations and to understand what their responsibilities in complying with the Act, are.

The course will address the implications of the Act for employees and employers in terms of increased obligations for safety, increased powers for the HSA and substantially increased penalties for breaches of the legislation. The course will also address legislation such as the REACH Regulation and the Safety Health and Welfare at Work (General Application) Regulations 2007.

The 2005 Act carried penalties of up to €3million and prison sentences of up to 2 years for those breaking the law.
