Get advice on health and safety law
Our health and safety lawyers provide a comprehensive service to help ensure regulatory compliance, whatever your business.
Regulation has placed an increasingly difficult burden on business which will continue in the coming years. The change in the court’s approach to sentencing following new guidelines which came into force in February 2016 now means that the stakes are higher than ever. Weightmans can help you meet your legal obligations and avoid incurring heavy penalties – morally, legally and financially.
Our health and safety consultancy unit offers a seamless service, from advice through to training, and works closely with our team of expert health and safety lawyers to provide a seamless service should you need legal advice and representation.
This service is available as either a one-off project or as an annual retainer as part of a service level agreement, which is bespoke to your business's needs.
In terms of prevention, we offer a full range of advisory services, including on-site inspections and audits, risk assessment work, advice regarding documentary procedures and safety management systems.
