If the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or local authority serves you or your business with a health and safety enforcement notice, and you believe that the decision to do so has been an unfair one, you have the right to appeal this. The Regulatory and Compliance Solicitors at Wilford Smith, with many years handling appeals of this kind across a wide range of sectors, can provide expert legal advice on the best way to proceed, offering clear, straight-forward and jargon-free advice throughout.
When deciding whether or not to appeal against an enforcement notice, there are a number of important issues to consider. The most pressing of these is the impact that such notices can have on your business and its reputation, with these being published on the HSE's public register of notices served for a period of five years. Furthermore, recent decisions have seen the scope for appeals widen, with tribunals being able to consider evidence that was not available to inspectors at the time that decision regarding the need to issue an enforcement notice was initially made. With their comprehensive skills in advocacy and litigation, our Regulatory and Compliance Lawyers are the best choice for you when it comes to pursuing the withdrawal of an enforcement notice, or having the terms of such a notice varied.
