Defending Heath & Safety Prosecutions

An HSE prosecution or investigation will have a significant impact on you or your business. This can be a stressful experience, especially as prosecution can result in substantial fines and even imprisonment due to new sentencing guidelines.

We specialise in defending HSE prosecutions and keep updated on the constant changes to health and safety laws. We have extensive experience in defending cases on behalf of businesses and individuals.

HSE Investigation

If there has been an incident or injury at your workplace, the HSE may investigate. You can be prosecuted if the injury was caused by breach of health and safety law, poor health and safety standards and risk management, failing to respond to HSE warnings or an Improvement or Prohibition notice, failing to provide employees with the appropriate clothing or equipment.

The HSE must prove your guilt beyond reasonable doubt. We have an expert criminal team who can advise you how best to defend yourself and have links with specialist barristers who will defend you during the criminal process.

It is vital that you seek immediate legal advice if you are facing an HSE prosecution or are to be interviewed by the HSE under caution. Please let us know as soon as you are aware you are to be investigated by the HSE.
