Health and Safety at Work: An introduction to mental health first aid

Why employee retention is key to business success and what you can do to improve it
10 February, Thursday  |  10am – 11am

SIGN UP

We have been hearing that many employers, have faced substantial challenges with recruiting staff.

Unemployment levels of UK citizens is generally at its lowest, meaning there are fewer candidates in the job market than ever before. The impact of Brexit, the subsequent change in immigration rules and the pandemic has meant that attracting overseas talent is also even more of a challenge. This has resulted in what is being called a ‘candidates’ market’.

With a financial squeeze on many employers due to the pandemic, coupled with the increases in tax and wages, it is vitally important for many employers to consider how to retain existing staff, without breaking the bank!

Join us in this webinar as we consider a wide range of both free and inexpensive ways in which all employers can improve their employee retention rates and attractiveness as an employer in these times.

Health and Safety at Work: Why do we bother with Health and Safety?
24 February, Thursday  |  12pm – 1pm

SIGN UP

In this webinar, Dom Greenwood, our Senior Health, Safety and Environmental Manager looks at how businesses can create a safer workplace, reduce accidents, and breaks down the misconceptions of why we need Health & Safety.

Dom will explore the main parts of the Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 and why they are important. Dom will also provide an overview of the new sentencing guidelines and explain the correlations between good health and safety practices and staff turnover and business performance.

The importance of welfare meetings: Advice and guidance for line managers
10 March, Thursday  |  10am – 11am

SIGN UP

Welfare meetings are held with employees who have a health condition, illness or injury which is having a significant impact on their performance or attendance. They most commonly occur when an employee has been on sickness absence for a prolonged period. They may also be valuable for employees who are in work but are managing a condition which is having an impact on their capability, for which they may require the support of their employer.

Employers have an implicit duty of care and are legally required to make reasonable adjustments where appropriate for those who have a disability under the Equality Act 2010. A welfare meeting is an ideal opportunity to ensure these duties are being met, when they are needed most.

Join us in this webinar, as we discuss how to approach these meetings, the aims, and the process – including when to arrange one, who should attend, how to prepare and information on reasonable adjustments.

Disciplinary processes – how to write legally compliant conduct allegations
14 April, Thursday  |  10am – 11am

SIGN UP

The importance of careful and correctly worded allegations should not be underestimated.

An invitation to a disciplinary hearing should set out exactly what the employee is being brought into the hearing to discuss and precisely the same reason must be given for any warning or dismissal that may be required. This means it is imperative that the allegations in the invite letter are fit for purpose from the outset.

Case law has repeatedly shown that allegations which were unclear, do not correspond precisely with the reason given for a warning/dismissal, or imply the outcome of the hearing may be pre-determined, can render a dismissal as legally unfair.

A strong investigation will set you up to know what is reasonable for you to allege against the employee. In this webinar we will help you with how to take the evidence and to turn it into really strong allegations every time.

Health and Safety at Work: An introduction to food safety

21 April, Thursday  |  12pm – 1pm

SIGN UP

It’s estimated that in the UK around 1 million people experience a foodborne illness every year. Food can become unsafe when it is contaminated with illness-causing bacteria, viruses, parasites, or chemicals. Symptoms range from mild to severe, but commonly include nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, stomach cramps, weakness, fever, and chills.
