Abstract: In June 2013, the owner of a UK demolition company North Eastern Maritime Offshore Cluster Ltd (NEMOC) was sentenced to three years in prison after being convicted of manslaughter in connection with an employee’s death at a worksite. In addition, Allan Turnbull, 61, who headed A&H Site Line Boring and Machining, was found guilty of gross negligence manslaughter. Turnbull had earlier pleaded guilty to violating general-duty provisions of the UK’s Health and Safety at Work Act. In addition, NEMOC and its director were also fined in the case for putting the victim at risk. Industry observers and social activists had insisted on safety concerns of workers in such projects being addressed.
