Health and Safety

Employers have a duty to ensure the health and safety of all their employees, but staff also have to follow the regulations set down by the business; everyone has to take reasonable care of their own safety and all must follow any training that they have received.

What Health and Safety Experience do we have?

Our team has extensive expertise in defending both businesses and senior business executives against a range of prosecutions brought by regulatory bodies including the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), County Councils, Local and water authorities.

And what about employees?

We have considerable experience in bringing prosecutions on behalf of the Health & Safety Executive; having worked on some high-profile cases resulting from some of the biggest industrial incidents in the UK we have gained a specialist understanding of Health & Safety law and the regulatory environment – experience which is matched by very few other firms in the UK.

What else should I know?

The circumstances surrounding Health & Safety claims are likely to present very sensitive legal issues in an emotive environment, a mix that all too often has the potential to damage personal reputations and brands.
