Convictions of Directors

Details of Convictions of Directors

The CCA has undertaken research into the number of directors convicted for health and safety offences.

Most - if not all - of these prosecutions relate to offences under section 37 of the Health and safety at Work Act.

To read about how directors can commit offences, click here.

Most of this information comes from an extensive interrogaation of HSE's own prosecution database which is supposed to have details of all convictions since April 1999. The CCA however found some cases that are not on the database.
