Certificate of Insurance Requests
In this edition, we look at two recent convictions resulting (in part) from situations where workers did not have the appropriate training and competence to perform work safely. We also touch on safety around gates, performance indicators and officers’ due diligence as well as news from the wider statutory liability world.
One of the recurring themes in The Safe Side has been the increasing cost of health and safety prosecutions. The sentencing of CentrePort again highlights why businesses and brokers need to ensure that limits of indemnity are sufficient to cover these costs.
The Health and Safety at Work Act (HASWA) has very broad coverage. This includes placing extensive duties on some designers, manufacturers, suppliers and importers of plant, substances and structures. We begin this issue by looking at the first prosecution for a contravention of these duties.
