Relative justice Daniel Dennis died at work aged 17. After a lengthy campaign by his parents, Daniel’s boss admitted manslaughter and on 6 May 2008 received a 10 month jail term. As a new corporate manslaughter law takes effect, Hazards editor Rory O’Neill looks at what it takes to put a killer behind bars.
Too young to die A young worker is seriously injured every 40 minutes and killed every four weeks. These workers aren’t “accident prone” or careless, they are inexperienced. When they are hurt, it means not enough was done to protect them. Hazards magazine, number 95, July/September 2006
