Mock sentencing hearing: Guilty - even though no one was injured
Employers have a legal duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees and other people who might be affected by their business and to do whatever is reasonably practicable to achieve this.
Employers who fail to discharge this duty will be held accountable by HSE and face criminal prosecution. Directors and senior managers will also be held to account personally if risks to health and safety are not properly managed. Prosecutions can be brought on the basis of risk alone even in the absence of any injury occurring.
This event is presented by Blake Morgan LLP, CIOB and RICS. The Mock Sentencing Hearing will focus on the Sentencing Guideline for Health and Safety Offences that came into force on 1 February 2016 and which have resulted in a significant increase in fines imposed upon offenders. This is a hugely informative and a must-see event, providing a valuable insight into the legal responsibilities of those who have a role in planning, managing and organising construction work.
