Health & Safety

Our expert health & safety team has considerable experience of dealing with criminal investigations by the police, Health & Safety Executive, public authorities and other regulatory bodies.

 

Safeguarding our clients' interests

 

We recognise that an investigation or prosecution following an injury or fatality is a challenging time for both businesses and individuals. We provide prompt and cogent advice to ensure that the interests of our clients are safeguarded. We offer support and guidance from the moment an incident occurs, the initial contact with the regulatory body and through each subsequent stage of the investigation, including any prosecution. Our focus is to minimise costs and business disruption and to protect the reputation of our clients. 

Our team are instructed across a range of sectors including construction, education, leisure, manufacturing, social care and waste management. We advise upon manslaughter investigations and prosecutions as well as inquests.

Training opportunities

 

We offer bespoke health and safety training solutions which are tailored to the individual needs of our clients including on-site inspections, assessment of risks and guidance regarding safe working practices and procedures.
