Neil Douglas, Partner at McLeods Barristers and Solicitors will provide a briefing on the principal features of the new Act, including:

  • the duties imposed on local governments, senior employees and others;
  • the principles that apply to these duties;
  • minimising risks 'so far as is reasonably practicable'; and
  • consultation requirements
