These are times of growing intolerance of any corporate recklessness that results in death. This intolerance exists in the UK, and many other jurisdictions. Commercially related deaths are now often followed by prosecutions of the relevant companies. Scotland's first prosecution for culpable homicide against a company was launched in March 2002, following the deaths of four family members in an explosion caused by a leaking gas pipe.
