Eversheds Sutherland Health, Safety and Employment Clinic discussing Lockdown 2 webinar - 9 November 2020

Who should attend

This webinar is aimed to anyone who would like to understand the practical insights into Health, Safety and Employment issues as we go into Lockdown 2.


What was initially labelled as a ‘softer’ lockdown is anything but, with a plethora of criminal offences for executives who flout the new rules. In the latest Corona Cast, Eversheds Sutherland’s lead partners in the safety space answer your questions about what you need to do to stay on the right side of the law.

Eversheds Sutherland Partners Paul Verrico, Tim Hill, Kevin Elliott and Louise Lightfoot discuss Lockdown 2 with regular guest panellist Alexis Powell-Howard, MD of Fortis Therapy and Psychotherapist.

In our popular Health, Safety and Employment Clinic, our panel discuss:

  • What do the new Health Protection (Coronavirus, Restrictions) (England) (No. 4) Regulations 2020 actually say is permitted?
  • Criminal offences for breaching the rules – who can be liable and what for?
  • What is the test for office workers to physically go to work?
  • Travelling to work – how much should employers do to plan?
  • Is wellbeing a reason to go to a place of work?
  • Risk Assessment – what is a suitable and sufficient risk assessment?
  • Wearing Masks in an office environment – necessary or a bridge too far?
  • The latest RIDDOR guidance – what do the stats say?
  • Mental Health in Lockdown – what should we be doing?
  • Supporting our people – what are other organisations doing?
  • Furlough rules – and will furlough be extended?
  • Horizon Scanning: issues in Safety and Employment
  • Magna Carta – how to communicate with employees who are influenced by popular conspiracy theories.

This is an open forum for you to have your questions answered by some of the leading commentators to help navigate the labyrinth of law, guidance, conjecture and myth.
