Organisations increasingly face investigation for corporate manslaughter and the number of convictions is expected to dramatically increase in the coming years.
The Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act (CMCHA) 2007 made it easier to secure convictions against organisations for their liability for workplace deaths.
An organisation can be convicted of someone’s manslaughter if its mismanagement amounts to a “gross” breach of a duty of care.
Firms convicted of corporate manslaughter with a turnover of more than £50m face fines of up to £20m and up to £10m for Health & Safety offences.
