Changes in the way that modern businesses operate mean that the role of supply chain operators and sub-contractors are now much more important than was previously the case. This can create unexpected legal duties for individuals and businesses in respect of who is liable for breaches of health and safety regulations should these occur further down the supply or work chain. Wilford Smith's Regulatory and Compliance Solicitors can provide expert legal advice in relation to all regulatory and compliance matters. We take pride in ensuring that our clients are given clear, straight-forward and jargon-free advice, and can advise on all matters relating to health and safety practices in your workplace.
The area of law concerning supply chain and sub-contractor liability is a complex one. In respect of damaging events that take place in the corporate supply chain, businesses may be liable if they fail to prevent harm occurring in violation of some duty to do so. In regards to sub-contractors, liability for breach of health and safety law will often depend on the legal arrangements between the main company and its sub-contractors, i.e. who is ultimately determined to be the employer with responsibility for health and safety in the workplace. Wilford Smith's specialist Regulatory and Compliance Lawyers have many years’ experience in handling such challenging cases and can provide essential legal guidance to ensure your position is protected.
