What happens if you’re prosecuted for health and safety failings?

Ellis Whittam’s expert Health & Safety team is proud to present a mock trial following a serious accident at work, to give you the opportunity to experience and participate in realistic Crown Court proceedings. This full-day event will provide you with valuable first-hand insight into how a company is prosecuted for breaches of health and safety law, highlighting the pitfalls which could result in a prosecution and conviction and how to avoid them.

What will the case be about?

Acting as a member of the jury, you will hear the HSE’s case as to how the defendant company failed to ensure the health and safety of an individual who was seriously injured in the workplace. Evidence will be given of deficiencies in the risk assessments, safe system of work, training, and auditing procedures which, according to the HSE, amount to a breach of The Safety at Work Act 1974.

What are the benefits of attending?

This mock trial will be an interactive event where you will witness a trial in action. It will develop your understanding of your duties as an employer (including the test of “reasonable practicability”), how a trial is conducted, and practical risk management tips to prevent you from encountering a similar scenario.
