Sadly, deaths can sometimes occur in the workplace as a result of corporate behaviour, such as ignoring health and safety procedures. When this happens, it’s known as Corporate Manslaughter. Recent changes to sentencing guidelines envisage fines up to £20 million, plus orders to publicise the fact of conviction, which can cause irreparable damage to your business.
If you’re in charge of a company’s health and safety policies, it’s vital that you understand the significance of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act and how to protect the safety of your employees and others who might be affected by what your organisation does. This corporate manslaughter training course has been designed to outline your legal responsibilities, and shows you how to protect against prosecution.
