Hesketh Henry provides advice in the health and safety legal space including compliance advice and has experience with WorkSafe investigations and litigation.
Our employment law health and safety team has extensive experience in helping companies and boards of directors understand their obligations under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015. We have provided training for staff of our clients and have been involved with designing and implementing health and safety policy documents and safety programmes.
We provide health and safety legal advice to many of our corporate clients, with the aim of avoiding problems before they occur. We also have team members on insurance company health and safety panels; through this connection our lawyers have witnessed some of the first prosecutions to occur under the new Act, and we were involved in negotiating one of the first enforceable undertakings accepted as an alternative to prosecution.
An important element of our role is keeping clients updated with health and safety legal news and developments. Our experts regularly write articles related to health and safety compliance and legal developments in this area.
