Health & Safety
Are you or your business facing prosecution by the Health & Safety Executive for a breach in Health & Safety Law? If so, we can offer you specialist defence to help protect you and your business from heavy penalties and criminal prosecution.
Failure to comply with Health & Safety legislation can have devastating consequences. As a result, penalties for a conviction can be harsh and include large fines and imprisonment.
Health & Safety Laws affect employers and, sometimes, employees. An inspector will investigate business premises or locations in a number of circumstances and prosecutions will happen where there are:
• Warning breaches
• Licence breaches
We can offer you or your business specialist advice, representation and defence on:
• Regulation breaches
• Regulation compliance
• Director’s liabilities & cautions
• Legal liabilities, defence & penalties
• Supply chain due diligence
• Improvement or prohibition notices
• Investigations and interviews under caution
We understand that facing investigation or criminal prosecution for breaches in Health & Safety Law can be very distressing and, potentially, devastating to your business. Our dedicated team of specialist solicitors will be on hand when you need them most, to guide you through the various proceedings, explaining your rights and obligations. We will support you through initial investigation and interviews and be there to represent you if you are formally prosecuted and your case goes to Court.
We have wide experience of dealing with the HSE, local authorities, the police and courts in these matters. We can assure you that every effort will be made to successfully defend you, protect your interests and minimise any damages you might face, arising from a prosecution.
