Families against corporate killers (fack)
Families against corporate killers - fack - is a national campaigning network which will campaign to stop workers and others being killed in preventable incidents and will direct bereaved families to sources of legal help and emotional support.
Relatives of people killed at work formed this national campaigning group. Fack believes families bereaved as a result of unsafe and unhealthy workplaces are angry and frustrated. They feel they have been robbed twice: Once of their loved ones in incidents that should have been prevented by employers simply obeying the law on workplace health and safety; and secondly of their right to justice.
The campaign is seeking urgent government action to halt the complacency about deaths at work and decent laws with will bring dangerously negligent bosses to justice. fack wants a review of the way work-related deaths are investigated and the way families are treated. And it believes workers and safety reps must be given more rights to protect themselves against exposure to unacceptable risks to their lives and health.
FACK has received donations from unions and individuals and is supported by Irwin Mitchell and McMillan Williams solicitors.
