Mock civil trial – conflict or compliment to thorough accident investigation?
This IOSH SE Branch mock trial event is now open for booking, and you can download a copy of the event flyer now, which gives you full details of the event and the programme for the day.
This sequel to the IOSH South East Branch mock criminal trial looks at the civil claim arising from the same factual scenario. Delegates will hear legal and insurance speakers on their roles in the claims process and from an occupational health expert on achieving a successful return to work. The event covers both liability and the economics, costs and HR aspects of the claims process.
What’s in it for you?
The challenges facing the health and safety practitioner will be highlighted, such as how information collected in the course of an accident investigation can become highly relevant, and how the practitioner might be called to give evidence.
Delegates will examine how they can positively affect outcomes, where tensions and conflict can arise, and discuss together during breakout workshops and Q&A sessions.
Delegates will enjoy a courtroom experience involving cross-examination of witnesses played by committee members. Following legal submissions, a former District Judge will rule on the day’s proceedings followed by a Q&A.
A major theme will be how to rehabilitate and retain an injured member of staff wherever possible. All too often, an injured worker goes on long-term sick leave, becomes depressed and is eventually dismissed on the grounds of ill health. With modest chances of finding comparable alternative employment, the worker brings a future loss of earnings claim for the rest of their working life. OH specialist Kim Boggins will look at how this worst-case scenario can be avoided in a win-win situation where claim costs are kept down and the employer retains a loyal and experienced employee, who it would otherwise take time and money to replace.
This event will be beneficial to any professional with a responsibility for accident investigation and/or insurance/civil claims management. As with all IOSH events, any value gained from attending this event can be recorded in your CPD portfolio.
