Health and Safety

Workplace health and safety impacts on every business and everyone in the workplace has obligations to ensure it is healthy and safe.

The potential risks for not complying with these obligations are huge and prosecutions for health and safety breaches can result in criminal convictions, fines, penalties and even imprisonment.

We advise on compliance with the Health and Safety in Employment Act, investigations and have expertise in defending health and safety prosecutions. Investigations can be complex and it is important that careful consideration is given to what is said during the course of investigations. We can advise you on issues relating to self-incrimination, and help you to present your workplace record effectively. Where an investigation results in a prosecution, we will help you through the process, including (if applicable) sentencing submissions.
