A guide to health and safety prosecutions

Description

Prevention or control
Written against the backdrop of increasing fines for health and safety offences against companies and individuals, this guide provides straightforward advice on how to avoid or deal with health and safety prosecutions in a practical manner.

The authors explain the law surrounding health and safety prosecutions as detailed by the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999, and analyse the practical issues involved in such prosecutions.

Corporate considerations
A guide to health and safety prosecutions provides valuable information on enforcement, investigations by the police and Health and Safety Executive, inquests, funding and how a case progresses through the criminal courts. It also includes detailed information about the issues that an organisation needs to consider when faced with an investigation. There is an extensive chapter explaining the sentencing process for convicted individuals and companies that also details the current trends in this area.

The book covers manslaughter prosecutions of individuals and companies along with an analysis and explanation of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Bill.

A practical knowledge base
Written in bite-size chapters that can be read as stand-alone documents, this practical guide provides a knowledge base for directors and managers as health and safety issues rise rapidly up the corporate governance agenda.
