Approximately a third of all fatalities in the workplace occur in the construction industry. This is reflected in the number of cases where convictions have been secured against building contractors on manslaughter charges.
For an organisation to be guilty of an offence under the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 the way in which it has managed or organised its activities must cause a person's death and amount to a gross breach of a relevant duty of care owed by the organisation to the deceased.
