R v. P Ltd. and another 

“An offence committed by a body corporate under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 was attributable to neglect by an officer of that body (or person acting in such a capacity), thereby amounting to an offence by that officer under s 37(1) of the 1974 Act, if the officer either knew of the relevant facts giving rise to the health and safety offence or, if he did not know, should by reason of the circumstances have been put on inquiry as to whether the relevant safety procedures were in place.”
