Do you Follow the Legal and Enforcement Community?

7th August 2019 RIAMS

Last year, we launched our Legal and Enforcement forum on RIAMS Communities. This forum is moderated by Tim Everett, former President of the CIEH and now a researcher in Environmental Health law at De Montford University, Leicester. Tim writes regular blog posts discussing a variety of legal issues and case law summaries highlighting recent cases, with the overarching theme for these being Environmental Health.

Posts you may find interesting include:
Civil and Criminal Personal Liability - this blog focuses on situations where an officer could find themselves personally liable if a decision or course of action is challenged.

Faltec Europe Ltd v Health and Safety Executive - in this case, the Court of Appeal looked in detail at the application of the relevant sentencing guidelines. The company in question had been charged on two counts of exposing employees and the public to risk of legionella infection.

R v Edward McIntosh - focuses on the extent to which a court can take into account the personal resources of a sole company director. In this case, the defendant, Mr McIntosh had been charged with 8 offences to which he pleaded guilty to 7 of them after in-depth discussions with the Environment Agency.

These are just a couple of examples of the blogs and case law summaries available through the Legal and Enforcement community so if you haven’t already, ‘follow’ this today.
