Thompsons Solicitors, who represents the Dennis family, said: "After a ten year battle at long last the families of the victims of corporate manslaughter, and the trade unions, have succeeded in achieving a law which will play a key part in improving health and safety and reducing deaths at work.
"The next part of the campaign is for legal duties to be imposed on directors of companies with responsibility for health and safety."
