Industrial Manslaughter

Industrial manslaughter is a criminal offence where an individual or organisation causes the death of a person in circumstances where they owed a duty of care to the person and were criminally negligent in breaching that duty. The duty-holder must have fallen short of the standard of care that would have been taken by a reasonable person in the circumstances.
