What constitutes an offence of corporate manslaughter? Who can be prosecuted for it and what are the punishments?

Corporate manslaughter is in English law an offence which companies, corporations or public bodies can be given unlimited fines for, and happens when its activities "are managed or organised [in a way which] causes a person's death; and amounts to a gross breach of a relevant duty of care owed by the organisation to the deceased". The activities have to be managed or organised by the organisation's senior management to qualify for a prosecution.
