DOI accused of multiple health and safety failings


Recommended Posts

http://www.three.fm/news/isle-of-man-news/doi-accused-of-multiple-health-and-safety-failings/

One does have to ask if, given the DOI CEO, Nick Black, is a former Health & Safety (H&S) senior inspector, whether our expectations of the way he runs his department in respect of H&S should be higher than if he was not from that background?

Or is that no different to expecting that if the CEO for the Dept of Health & Social Care were to be a former psychiatrist, that mental health services would be better than if he were say from an administrative background?

Nothing revealed as to the actual area of concern and prosecution though.

Wonder if it could be anything to do with a certain mountain-climbing (or descending, to look at it another way) tram?

If it were to be tram related, for example, and the season is still running, that would surely be in the public's interest?

yes it would be in the public interest, but not the interests of the IOMG machine.

Given it was a first appearance, all the media could get would be the Court list, which details the basis of the summons, but not the facts.

The Defendant had asked for an adjournment. The various summonses were not read out.

Matter was adjourned, when, they summonses will be put, details given, and a guilty or not guilty plea made. If guilty the facts will be read to the court, if not guilty then a review and hearing date will be set, at which the evidence will be given, both prosecution and defence.

Thats how it happens, whether the defendant is a government body or not. So you don’t have a conspiracy theory. Nothing is being done to hide or protect or for the convenience of government. If what you expect to happen did occur, then government would be being treated differently, and you could rightly object.

DOI hit with £18k fine for H&S failings on the runaway tram (iomtoday).

They should probably consider themselves lucky they're not getting sued for manslaughter.
