Rowan Jenkins, Christine Henson and Francesca Lewington are giving a seminar on the impact of the decision in “Tangerine and Veolia v The Queen”. This case addressed the fundamental issue of what the Prosecution actually has to prove in allegations of breach of the Health and Safety At Work Act 1974. This seminar will seek to answer the following questions: How much have things really changed over the years? When there has been an injury or death, is the Crown required to prove a link to the offence alleged? How far does the civil concept of foreseeability of injury apply?
All three speakers are specialist regulatory lawyers, recognised in the Legal 500 Directory. Each has built up considerable recent trial experience in health and safety law, including fatalities at work, and environmental offences. They have conducted cases from both prosecution and defence aspects.
The seminar will be held from 5.00pm – 6.30pm on 23rd May 2012 at Crown Office Row Chambers, 119 Church Street, Brighton BN1 1UD and has been registered for 1.5 CPD points.
