Ioannis brought to my attention the fact that there is a Human Resources website offering consultancy on Corporate Manslaughter.
Yes, you heard right.
“On the 6th April 2008 the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 comes into force. This means that companiesâ€™ internal control of health and safety is a business risk that senior managers can no longer regard as a minor matter. Directors must act immediately, to raise the status of health and safety so that it assumes the same level of boardroom importance as other business risks.”
Aha! I spotted a loophole in the last sentence. As long as we raise the status of health and safety to the same level of boardroom importance as other business risks…
I just remembered a good old line: “I put the ‘laughter’ in ‘manslaughter'”!!
