Companies are increasingly the subject of regulations. We offer a specialist all round service for clients who may be faced with regulatory investigations.
Health and Safety
Problems can arise even at the best run companies. Some examples include:
Factory accidents that result in injury or death – e.g. a visitor to factory premises is run over by a forklift truck.
An employee is injured by a piece of equipment after being instructed to work in a part of the factory that he is unfamiliar with.
An employee is injured by sheets of metal falling on him which had not been stored safely in the employer’s factory.
Sometimes accidents happen such as:
A sewage overflow discharging effluent into a nearby stream and killing fish.
A company causing hazardous chemicals to escape from its factory and pollute a local river.
