Employers are legally responsible for the health and safety of their employees and visitors, such as customers, suppliers and the members of the public, both at their usual premises or when they are involved in activities elsewhere, for example, on a construction site.
All businesses should make health and safety a priority, to reduce and control the risk of accident or injury in order to provide a safe environment in which people can work and do business.
As well as keeping your employees and other people safe, investing in health and safety will protect your enterprise against the time and cost involved in putting right a breach of health and safety, the expense of a potential prosecution and the associated damage to your business’s reputation.
At Palmers, our specialists can advise on the very latest health and safety regulations and assist you in putting in place practical measures to ensure that your business always complies with the law.
With workplace incidents having potentially far-reaching consequences for both businesses and individuals, we also provide expert legal advice and representation at health and safety-related interviews and prosecutions.
