23 May 2017: Masterclass 'Accidents at work'

22.04.2017 NL law

While repairing a malfunction of a machine, an employee suffers an injury. What should an employer do if the Inspectorate of Social Affairs and Employment (SZW), under the direction of the Public Prosecutor's Office, conducts an investigation into this accident at the workplace? Who can be held liable by the regulatory authority? Is the employer liable for the damage, even when it involves temporary staff or independent workers? 

Download the presentation of 23 May 2017 (in Dutch). 

On Tuesday 23 May 2017 Stibbe organises the Masterclass 'Accidents at the workplace'. During this Masterclass attendees hear answers to these and other questions about this topic.

Despite the measures taken by companies to increase the safety in the workplace, accidents still happen. Industrial accidents at the workplace can have major consequences for companies, executives and employees. In practice, investigations by regulators and investigating officers (the Inspectorate SZW and the Public Prosecutor's Office) lead to increasingly higher sanctions. In addition, employers can be faced with claims and procedures from employees involved in the workplace accident. During the Masterclass the Stibbe lawyers discuss (recent) developments concerning the legal consequences (administrative, criminal and employment law) of industrial accidents.

During the Masterclass we will also discuss the following questions.

  • How is an investigation conducted by the Inspectorate SZW and how should employers act?
  • How can an employer self-investigate the cause of the accident?
  • What enforcement resources does the Inspectorate SZW/Public Prosecutor have?
  • Under what circumstances is an accident in the workplace a criminal offence and how high are the penalties that can be imposed?
  • When can a sanction be imposed on the executives?
  • How to handle a fine or other penalty that has been imposed?
  • Does the imposed penalty play a role in the employer-employee relationship?
  • How to set up a company to minimize the risk of incidents and liability for both the employer and the executives?

Participation in this Masterclass is without charge. The Masterclass will be given by Christien Saris (compliance and sanctions expert), Marleen Velthuis (criminal law expert) and Johan Zwemmer (employment law expert).
