Northants construction bosses invited to mock trial

21st July 2010 | Construction Signs

Construction firm managers in the Northampton area are being invited to a new event to help them improve their understanding of health and safety issues.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has organised a mock trial at the town's 17th-century Sessions House Court, which will take place tomorrow (July 22nd).

A fictional company will be in the dock for an offence - such as failing to use appropriate warning signs - with magistrates judging the case on the evidence presented to them.

Sharon Geeson, a health and safety awareness officer at the HSE, revealed that attendees will have the chance to ask the legal representatives questions about the case.

"As a director or senior manager, your job is to make sure that things go right for your business and your workers aren't put at unnecessary risk," she said.

"With the best will, things can still go wrong. This mock trial aims to explain what can happen when a worker is hurt and the HSE decides to prosecute."

Tickets for the event cost £25 per person, which includes tea or coffee and a buffet lunch, and anyone interested should call 01604 738333 or email
