Wilford Smith's Regulatory and Compliance Solicitors have a wealth of experience when it comes to advising clients across all sectors on their legal duties and liabilities concerning the UK's health and safety laws. We can work with you to ensure that you comply with relevant regulatory frameworks, that any incidents are managed appropriately and resolved quickly, as well as providing the highest quality representation should the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) or local authority look to explore enforcement proceedings. Should a criminal prosecution be pursued, our lawyers appear in court regularly, taking a ruthless approach to representing our clients' interests, and can attract the highest calibre barristers to provide support when necessary.
An employer has a legal duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees, as well as anyone else that may be affected by their business such as customers and members of the public. In pursuit of this, risk assessments must be carried out to address any risks that exist or may arise, with information regarding this being passed on to those who work there. Failure to adhere to the UK's health and safety laws can be a very serious matter, with penalties including substantial fines and periods of imprisonment. Wilford Smith's Regulatory and Compliance Lawyers have the skills, knowledge and determination to conduct the most robust defence on your behalf should you find yourself accused of breaching health and safety regulations.
