[2006] EWHC 3211 (Admin)

It was appropriate for the Crown Prosecution Service to reconsider its decision not to prosecute individuals for gross negligence manslaughter after an employee had fallen through a roof light to his death; it was seriously arguable that a different decision might be reached if account were to be taken of the seriousness of an employer's failure to give proper instruction to an employee as to the dangers of working at heights or on roofs.

DC (Waller LJ, Lloyd-Jones J)
