    'Corporate Manslaughter' Mock Trial

    Grand Hotel Gosforth Park, Newcastle NE3 5HN
    You are invited to participate in this innovative and engaging event, where you will witness a practical example of a trial in action. The outcome of the trial is dependent on your views.

     

    This trial is loosely based on the Lion Steel corporate manslaughter prosecution. Following the death of an employee following a fall from height, Lion Steel was prosecuted for corporate manslaughter and three of its directors for gross negligence manslaughter. All were prosecuted for health and safety breaches.

     

    The event focuses not just on failings by the Management, but inadequate risk assessments and health and safety management in the organisation. The trial demonstrates how individuals’ failings can be “totted up” in order to mount a corporate manslaughter charge.

     

    The mock trial takes approximately 3.5 hours to run and you will sit as a “member of the jury”. At the end of the session, delegates will understand both the law on corporate manslaughter and their personal responsibility under section 7 Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. They will understand how a number of apparent minor oversights by individuals can lead to (1) a tragic incident and (2) individuals becoming criminally liable.

     

    The event also includes a detailed analysis of the guidance on the sentencing of corporate manslaughter and health and safety offences.

     

    Cost: £20.00 + Vat per head non CECA members

    £15.00 + Vat per head CECA members
