Health and safety legislation creates legal duties and obligations for individuals and companies across all commercial sectors, with employers potentially finding themselves liable for any harm caused on their premises. If you are the subject of a health and safety investigation, the consequences can be extremely damaging. For minor breaches, enforcement procedures such as improvement notices or prohibition notices may result, but serious breaches may lead to criminal prosecutions, with substantial fines or prison sentences for those convicted. If an incident happens in your workplace, you will find yourself in a situation that is complex and rapidly-developing, and you will need to act quickly to protect yourself and your business.
