HSE Crown Censure of MOD over death of cadet

The Ministry of Defence (MOD) has been censured over safety failings that led to the death of a 14-year-old cadet.

Kaylee McIntosh died in August 2007 after becoming trapped beneath the boat she was in when it capsized on Loch Carnan in bad weather.

A Health and Safety Executive investigation found a series of serious failings by Major George McCallum, who was leading the boating trip, compounded by systemic organisational failings by MOD Army.

General Sir Nick Parker attended the Crown Censure meeting and accepted the findings on behalf of the MOD, formally acknowledging there were health and safety failures.

The MOD cannot face prosecution in the same way as non-Government bodies. Crown Censures are agreed procedures applicable to Crown employers, including the MOD, in lieu of criminal proceedings.
