A LEGAL VIEW OF VALUE FOR MONEY IN SAFETY

This paper examines the legal constraints to be taken into consideration in the evaluation of safety measures. The areas of negligence, the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and manslaughter are considered briefly and some examples of cases outlined. European directives are found to be less concerned with safety. The findings of the Hidden inquiry following the rail accident at Clapham are discussed. For the covering abstract of the conference see IRRD 872231.
