Lara Murray, an associate solicitor at the firm, achieved the qualification through the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH), an independent awarding body established in 1979 whose qualifications are recognised by the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH).
In order to gain her NEBOSH qualification, Lara had to complete a course, pass two exams and a practical assessment.
Lara said: “Having this NEBOSH qualification means that I can help clients to manage health and safety risks effectively. It has certainly given me a much better understanding of the practical impact of these regulations upon employers. That practical understanding complements the advice that we traditionally give on the legal technicalities.
“It also further reinforces the comprehensive legal advice which Palmers is able to offer to employers of all sizes and across all sectors.”
