Policy Statement

This policy is in line with Care Inspectorate and Scottish Social Services Council guidance, which alerts care providers to the offences of wilful neglect created under the Health (Tobacco, Nicotine etc and Care) (Scotland) Act 2016 and corporate homicide, which was created under the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007. It also reflects Health and Safety law in relation to the investigations of breaches of the regulations that can follow from serious incidents in which people are harmed or even die.
