In this article, we argue that workplace fire should be understood within an occupational safety and health context. We selected two cases of fire and explosion with the greatest numbers of fatalities from the annual lists of the "Worst Manslaughter Companies of the Year" in Korea. Through review of information from major media, government, courts, and workers' advocacy organizations, we found that these incidents resulted from violations of basic safety rules by the companies, and that the penalties imposed on them were light...

In 2010 Dr Jayant Patel was convicted of several offences on the basis of criminal negligence. Following the Queensland Court of Appeal's 2011 endorsement of the trial judge's decision, the case provides a timely opportunity to review prosecutions for medical negligence criminal offences throughout Australia and to critically examine the tests in assessing whether the balance has been correctly struck. The author argues that the thresholds required for prosecutions for criminal negligence for medical manslaughter are problematic and unduly onerous, and do not adequately strike the balance between the utilitarian value in health care and patient safety, on the one hand, and practitioner accountability and deterrence, on the other...

The potential pitfalls for health estates, board-level, and other senior healthcare personnel should proper health and safety and risk assessment procedures not be set out, followed, recorded, and regularly reviewed, and the legal ramifications of any failure of duty under legislation such as the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and the Corporate Manslaughter Act of 2007, were examined at a recent IHEEM risk seminar in London. In the first of two articles (the second will appear in October's issue) covering the event, HEJ reports on a specialist lawyer's overview...

This article considers the crime of gross negligence manslaughter and explains how the criminal offence is based on the civil form of negligence, but where the negligence is very serious and involves a risk of death. It also considers the offence of corporate manslaughter.

The key areas that NHS Trusts and other organisations running healthcare facilities need to consider, and the risk audit processes recommended, to minimise their risk of prosecution under the Corporate Manslaughter & Homicide Act should fatalities occur on their premises, were examined by Gary Rogers, a chartered surveyor at Faithful + Gould, at the Healthcare Facilities Consortium's recent 2008 Annual Conference.

This paper is intended to update dental practitioners and commissioners of dental services on the significance of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 which came into force in April 2008. The paper places the Act in the context of the potential criminal (as opposed to civil) liabilities of dental providers. It looks in detail at criminal liability, health and safety and gross negligence manslaughter. In particular it explains the essential elements of the new offence: the threshold question of which organisations are covered, the relevant duty of care, when an organisation may be culpable, and what penalties they may face on conviction...

The Government published its long-awaited draft Bill on the creation of a new criminal offence of corporate manslaughter shortly before the May 2005 general election. The Bill was included in the Queen's Speech after the general election and, with a Labour government back in power, the new offence could be on to the statute book as early as 2006. The Home Affairs Committee and the Work and Pensions Committee announced ajoint inquiry to consider and report on the Bill. This is expected to be completed by the end of 2005...
