This is an innovative and engaging session lead by DAC Beachcroft Solicitors. It is based on real life examples of what can go wrong on a construction site when underground services are struck and offers a snapshot of a Crown Court trial where delegates will play the role of the Jury, determining the verdict and, if appropriate, the sentence.
The vast majority of people will never have been involved in a Health & Safety court hearing. Gaining some insight into how it would feel giving evidence at a trial, or even being a defendant, can be a powerful and thought-provoking experience.
Delegates will experience the high impact of a courtroom trial, seeing evidence being given, discussing the issues arising and seeing how failure to achieve day to day compliance can lead to major evidential problems in defending a criminal Health & Safety prosecution.
