Peter Gray QC successfully represented Chevron North Sea Ltd in a hearing before the Supreme Court concerning the proper approach to appeals under section 24 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974: HM Inspector of Health and Safety v Chevron North Sea Ltd [2018} UKSC 7. The different approaches of the Scottish Inner Session and the EWCA has been resolved so that it is now clear that a tribunal hearing an appeal against a Prohibition Order is not confined to considering whether the issue of the Notice was justified at the time the Inspector issued it but is entitled to take into account evidence that has become available subsequent to the Inspector’s decision.
