Answer: 

Directors cannot rely upon limited liability to avoid the risk of being prosecuted as an individual if a death occurs in the workplace following breaches of health and safety. Penalties upon conviction can range from an unlimited fine to life imprisonment depending upon the circumstances. Seek legal advice immediately.
