Corporate Manslaughter Act

4 workers a day per 300 (taking off a few holidays) come more or less to 1200 dead workers each year. If you survive the traffic (20 dead each day) and get to the building site you can’t complain. You’ve increased your chances of survival.

Dying while working is a contradiction of terms. Those deaths should not occure. Four dead a day for the company mean just a lower cost in preventing safety, but not the coffins.

There are also accidents that don’t end in death, but can cause irreversible damage. There are a million a year, a great round number.
Easy to remember. I understand that Iraq is important, that Afghanistan is fundamental, that Kosovo is on the agenda. But slaughter at work, isn’t that more important?
It is important to have the Corporate Manslaughter Act which is the dedicated resource centre to assist in the preparation for the long awaited Corporate Manslaughter Act coming into effect on 6th April 2008.
Only 3 weeks and 5 days to go ...don't miss it, it is too important...
