Those flouting health and safety laws will now be subject to tougher penalties as unlimited magistrates’ fining powers come into force.
The cap on how much the magistrates’ court can fine offenders has been removed. That means unlimited fines for health and safety breaches and now allows magistrates’ to impose higher fines for offences that were committed on or after 12th March 2015.
Magistrates now hold the right to hand down whatever fine penalty they feel fits the severity of the offence. Considering bad building site health and safety has the very real possibility of causing severe injury – or even death – fines have the potential of running into several thousands of pounds. And that’s not all – offenders could also be subject to an imprisonment on top of the fine – for a term of up to six months.
