R v EGS LTD (2009)

PUBLISHED October 8, 2009

[2009] EWCA Crim 1942

It might be appropriate, in health and safety prosecutions in the Crown Court, at all events when the matter was not the subject of an early plea, for a judge to be nominated at an early stage to manage the case to trial. That should be done in all cases involving death or very serious injury and in any other cases where there was potential complexity.
