The Mock Investigation Process aims to provide delegates with an understanding of both the law and market practice relating to workplace injuries and fatalities in the United Arab Emirates. The session will include an overview of the key legislation relating to liability for workplace injuries and fatalities as well as interactive role plays focusing on the Public Prosecutor investigation following a workplace injury or fatality where the matter has been referred to the Public Prosecutor by the Police following their initial investigation. The session will be based around real life examples of cases handled by Clyde & Co's workplace health and safety specialists and will draw upon some of the issues they have encountered in such cases, highlighting the importance in ensuring that interview subjects are comprehensively prepared for the Public Prosecutor interview in advance. Clyde & Co will share practical tips on how best to manage each step of the investigation process in order to minimise exposure for the company and its employees and by the end of the session, delegates should have a clearer understanding of how to respond in the event of a workplace injury or fatality and what to expect in the event a workplace injury or fatality occurs.
