Developments in risk management and directors' obligations

Event Date:

Level 27, QV1 Building
250 St Georges Terrace

Hefty penalties and the potential risk of licenses to operate being cancelled, reputational risk and imprisonment associated with mismanagement means its critical for directors to stay on top of new developments.

Directors must ensure their company's environmental and WHS strategy is at the top of the boardroom agenda.

It is evitable that at some point WA will adopt harmonised WHS laws. Developments that directors need to be aware of include:
Recent prosecutions of directors for breach of environmental and WHS duties
The ever increasing risk posed by the importation and inadvertent use of asbestos containing products, and
The ongoing tensions caused by contractor management models.

Join our panel of experts as they explore these developments, share recent cases and provide tips to help Boards mitigate the risk of liability.
