Health and safety laws affect all businesses from sole traders to multi-national companies. The range and complexity of health and safety legislation means that it is important to seek advice pro-actively, to ensure that your company is compliant with the law, rather than waiting for an accident to happen.
If a company is prosecuted, in addition to the prospect of significant fines and damaging publicity, there is the possibility of custodial sentences for company directors or officers. If the worst happens and your company faces investigation by the police, Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or local authority, it is vital to obtain specialist legal advice from the outset in order to protect your company’s position.
