Health, Safety and Regulatory Law

“Keeping you and your business on the right side of the law.”

Workplace regulations can be complex and time-consuming at the best of times. Whether you are an independent professional, small to medium sized enterprise or large multi-national organisation, you are liable for specific health, safety and regulatory legislation.

As a business owner, it is advisable you seek the legal counsel of a Solicitor to make sure you are abiding by every regulation and law applicable to the industry you are in. All employers have a duty of care to those who work for them, however, as is sometimes the case health and safety measures and certain regulations can get overlooked in the workplace. Elsewhere, professional persons may face misconduct charges and will require expert legal representation.
