  • Business drivers have 29-50% higher collision rates than private drivers. (TRL)

  • 15% of company car drivers have a collision every year. (Association of British Insurers)

  • 1/3 of all crashes involve an ‘at-work’ driver. (Department for Transport)


Where is the risk

  • Lack of safety culture

Corporate manslaughter and corporate homicide act 2007

Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007

  • Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 makes the issue of health and safety in the workplace – the business vehicle – something employers can no longer ignore.

  • Employers are responsible for their employees when they drive for work.


Champions presentation

Corporate Manslaughter and

Corporate Homicide Act 2007

  • Allows the prosecution of the companyas well as the prosecution of individuals.

  • Routes to prosecution will be easier.


Champions presentation

Corporate Manslaughter and

Corporate Homicide Act 2007

  • HSE ‘Driving at Work’ should be treated as a code of practice.

  • Police can now use this guidance to prove negligence and to prosecute.


Champions presentation

Corporate Manslaughter and

Corporate Homicide Act 2007

  • The offence

    • Will focus on failures within the management of the company for which the company will be accountable

    • Will require the organisation to owe a duty of care to the victim which is obvious in a driving scenario

    • Will require evidence that the management failure amounts to a gross breach of duty to take reasonable care


Champions presentation

Corporate Manslaughter and

Corporate Homicide Act 2007

  • When will a duty be owed?

    • As an employer to employees, i.e. fleet operator to its drivers.

    • As an employer to the victims of their employees, i.e. passengers, other drivers or pedestrians.

    • As occupiers of land, for example an employee’s place of work or somewhere to which the public has access.

    • When supplying goods or when engaged in a commercial activity.


Champions presentation

Corporate Manslaughter and

Corporate Homicide Act 2007

  • Management Failure Criteria

    • The test is the way in which a particular activity is being managed or in reality mismanaged.

    • Responsibility will fall on senior directors and managers.

    • If a middle manager was undertaking a senior role then his or her actions will be relevant.

    • Responsibility of individuals who have a `significant role` - where management responsibilities bear on the organisation as a whole or a substantial part of it, this will include health and safety or fleet managers.
