We are excited to bring together a panel of health and safety experts to answer your questions, offer their perspective on the challenges you face and support you prepare for the plethora of changes being introduced including;

  • The Building Safety Act

  • The Fire Safety Act,

  • New requirements on smoke and carbon monoxide alarms

  • Recent consultation on changes to electrical safety testing

  • Amendments to Building Regulations (ADB).

And many more….

Our expert panel will be made up of both legal and practitioner experts in health and safety. It’s a great opportunity to ask those burning questions, find out how others are approaching issues and learn from others. We will be asking for your questions in advance so our panel members can offer comprehensive views. Please not that we will not be able to offer bespoke legal advice on specific technical cases.
