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 a contractor 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 Health and Safety at Work etc 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.
