Standing up for employers

Acting directly for our clients, we can assist in the management of serious accidents - either before or in conjunction with the employer’s legal team. With our previous experience in health and safety enforcement, we know the likely course an investigation will follow and will be able to give advice appropriate to the situation.

We often stand up to the enforcement authority where they suggest an employer should have adopted standards, which are far in excess of those commonly accepted across the industry concerned. If necessary, we can also challenge the enforcing authority's position when their requirements exceed the reasonably practicable test.

In many cases, our early involvement has resulted in an employer not being prosecuted when otherwise they would most likely have been. Our early advice will also assist the employer in deciding on whether the situation requires a defensive approach or not.
