St Georges Hall, Liverpool, is set to be the location for the mock trial which is being held regarding the Construction Design Management Regulations in the coming months of this 2016.
The mock trial is a joint venture presented by The Working Well Together Group and the law firm Pinset Masons LLP. ‘HSE v Build-it Quik UK Limited – Guilty or Not Guilty – What’s Your Verdict?’ is the title of the mock trial which is primarily going to be used as an exercise in exploring the duties of both contractors and designers under the Construction Design and Management Regulations 2015.
Within the trial the audience will take the place of the jury and come to a consensus about the materials and arguments put forwards within this mock trial. The brief outline of the court case involves the prosecution of a Principle Designer after there has been an accident during the final stages of a construction project. Specifics of the accident include that the labourer in question sustained serious crush injuries while he was transporting a glass door.
This case will be presented by representatives from Pinset Masons LLP as well as other barristers, all from leading health and safety firms.
Members of the audience will be able to listen to the Principle Designer give evidence as well as the arguments given by both the prosecution and the defense. At the conclusion of the event the audience will act as the jury and give a verdict on the case – following this there is to be a discussion on the new sentencing guidelines that have been introduced in February 2016 and what they mean for breaches to the CDM Regulations 2015.
HSE v Build-it Quick UK Limited – Guilty or Not Guilty – What’s Your Verdict? is due to take place on the 15th September 2016.
