There are a number of essentials such as good co-operation with the authorities, support for workers and clear communication. However, all too often we see the same mistakes being made that can create unnecessary legal and reputational risks for the organisation and the individuals within it.
Knowing what to do in those early stages helps you to make better, informed decisions which can have a lasting impact in health & safety cases. The wrong decisions can affect the direction of the investigation and can increase the potential for enforcement action.
Our Mock Investigation Event is a practical session centred around an evolving scenario.
Step by step we take you through an investigation that has not gone well, and we show you why so many problems occurred and how they could have been avoided.
- The Judges Sentencing Remarks – An incident has occurred and unfortunately a worker has died. The company and a director have been prosecuted. We take ourselves to Court and listen to the Judge’s comments about this case.
- The immediate aftermath – We go right back to the day of the incident and look at how the investigation unfolded. We look at the critical decisions made at this early stage and how the wrong decisions can cause difficulties later in the investigation.
- Police and HSE Powers – We consider how to deal with requests for information from the Police and HSE.
- Legal Privilege – How to protect investigation reports and what to do when people ask to see the investigation report
