Failure to comply with the provisions found in the UK’s health and safety legislation can result in devastating consequences, both for those who work at or have dealings with a business, as well as for those who are ultimately responsible for a company’s compliance with regulatory schemes.
For those found to have breached health and safety laws, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or local authority can serve enforcement notices to improve or prohibit particular working practices, impose substantial fines and even pursue criminal prosecutions. The Regulatory and Compliance Solicitors at Wilford Smith can provide essential legal guidance on regulatory compliance across a wide range of sectors, offering industry-specific advice to ensure that you carry out your business in accordance with all legal duties and obligations.
By instructing a lawyer from our Regulatory and Compliance Team you will receive guidance on complying with the health and safety regulatory framework, as well as advice on managing health and safety issues and emergency planning.
