Simple. Sensible. Safety.

Directors beware!
 
New sentencing guidelines come into effect on the 1 November 2018 and these will increase the potential jail term from two years to up to 18 years for ”gross negligence manslaughter at work”.
 
It’s important company owners, directors and senior managers fully understand these changes. 
 
In summary:
The 2016 guidance that judges must follow in determining sentences for gross negligence manslaughter in the workplace (the most serious offence that can be committed by an individual for a health and safety breach in the workplace) changes soon.
 
The original guidelines led to a significant rise in fines for companies and reduced the threshold for individuals (normally directors) to be sent to jail for health and safety offences.
 
This threshold will soon be lowered again - making it easier for inspectors to prosecute individuals - but soon the maximum jail term will not be two years but 18 years!
