Did you miss our webinar on the new Workplace Manslaughter Laws?

24 June 2020

Victoria’s tough new Workplace Manslaughter Laws may affect you.

Horner recently hosted a webinar on the topic of the new Victorian Workplace Manslaughter Laws with guest speaker Gina Capasso of KHQ Lawyers, an expert lawyer in workplace health and safety laws, and Peter Langford, Horner Director as the Facilitator.  The recording of the webinar is available as a video on demand.

In the webinar, Gina discussed and provided guidance on solutions to the questions and issues confronting businesses under these impending new laws.

With the potential of imprisonment of up to 20 years for individuals and fines of up to $16.5 million for companies, it is critical for all businesses, regardless of size or industry, to understand and prepare for these new laws.

As the new Victorian workplace manslaughter laws commence on 1st July 2020, now is the time for all organisations to focus on these new laws and take steps to prepare.

We’ve already received some positive feedback from our webinar:
“A very informative and helpful session.”
“Fantastic webinar Gina and Peter, very clear and informative.”
“Thanks guys. Very thorough and informative. Would be good to see more of these.”
