Health and Safety

02 May 18

Organiser: DAC Beachcroft

Venue: 3 Hardman Street, Spinningfields, Manchester M3 3HF

Health and Safety

This session will run as a mock corporate manslaughter trial based on a legionella outbreak in Council owned premises.  You will act as a juror in the Crown Court trial of Manderley Borough Council and Frank Crawley, where, following an outbreak of Legionnaires’ Disease seven people have died as a result of contracting the disease.
 
The source of the outbreak is traced to the Manderley Leisure Centre, owned and operated by the Council and the police investigation identifies that Mr Crawley, the Head of Facilities Management at the Council, cancelled a contract for the cleaning and maintenance of the air cooling system at the Centre. A number of alleged failings are identified and the police charge the Council with seven offences of corporate manslaughter. Mr Crawley is also charged under section 7 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 for failing to take reasonable care for the health and safety of those who may be affected by his acts or omissions whilst at work.
 
The case will follow the format of a real Crown Court trial including evidence from an HSE inspector about the Council’s risk management procedures, training and auditing. You will also hear from the Defendant, Mr Crawley. Experienced advocates from DAC Beachcroft will prosecute and defend the case but it is for you, the Jury, to decide whether the Defendants are guilty or not guilty of the charges which they face. Should you convict the Defendant(s), then you will participate in an exercise in which you will be asked to apply the Definitive Guidance on the Sentencing of Corporate Manslaughter and Health and Safety Offences.
 
This is an interactive and engaging training session in which all delegates play a part in the outcome. Following the session, you will have gained a better understanding of the law relating to corporate manslaughter, the statutory responsibility of any employee whilst at work, the application of the new sentencing guidance and HSE’s guidance on management of health and safety. It is also perhaps the best jury training anyone not already called for jury service will get!
 
Please note that this training session is 3.5 hours long (including a break) and will therefore end at 13:00.
