Inquest Webinar

We will be providing insight and guidance into how organisations should deal with unexpected and unexplained deaths they might have a connection with, for example those of tenants or service users in general needs, supported, assisted and extra care accommodation.

The webinar will touch on:

2. the Health and Safety Executive

3. the purpose and process of inquests and potential conclusions

4. interplay with criminal and/or civil proceedings and regulatory involvement

5. PR considerations

This webinar is aimed at those who might have involvement in inquests or the repercussions of a death, including in-house lawyers, staff on the front line who may have to deal with a death as well as those who carry out internal investigations on behalf of their organisation
