Health & Safety

When running events, selling or serving alcohol or food, graduate groups need to meet health and safety requirements, prepare, plan and train. The committee members of groups should make a reasonable effort to observe health and safety recommendations and show due diligence. Committees risk facing liabilities or penalties outlined in legislation and common law.
