Disputes Nightmares: What would you do if...there was a fatality or serious incident at work?


Join Kizzy Augustin, Head of Health and Safety and Partner in the White Collar Crime & Investigations team at Mishcon de Reya, along with Crystal Danbury, an Industry Health & Safety Risk Consultant, as they provide actionable insights into managing workplace fatalities and serious incidents. Our discussion will encompass vital steps to take within the first 24 hours and long-term risk mitigation strategies. Alexandra Clough, a Construction Disputes Partner at Mishcon de Reya, will offer insights from the construction industry's perspective. 

Prioritising workplace safety is crucial and many industries have improved the safety of their workers over the last 20 years, with workplace fatalities generally showing a downward trend. However, it's important to acknowledge that there is still work to be done. Tragically, in the 2022/23 period, the HSE reported 135 worker fatalities in the UK, with the construction industry at the top of the list in terms of numbers. Whilst the focus must always be on prevention, being prepared for the unthinkable can help with learning lessons and longer term improvements in safety.  

Our 25-minute webinar, which will provide practical tips and insight into:

  • The first 24 hours: Emergency response
  • Making a report to HSE
  • Supporting those affected
  • Investigations and implementing recommendations
  • Inquests and longer term outcomes
