Putting the right safeguards in place to protect your firm’s employees, customers and members of public should be a top priority.
The financial cost and reputational damage of accidents and work-related illness can be significant – with the possibility of a compensation claim or criminal prosecution in the most serious cases – so it is important that you understand your obligations.
At Hethertons, our experienced team approach health and safety issues from an employer’s perspective and will work with you to find practical solutions appropriate to the size of the business and the sector in which you operate.
We can assist with matters including:
- Health and safety policy
- Risk assessments
- Workplace safety inspections
- Health and safety training
- Fire safety
- Asbestos management
- Contractor accreditation schemes
- Construction safety
- Disaster recovery and business continuity
Our health and safety services are available as an optional part of the Hethertons Employment Law Package (HELP!) or as a stand-alone service. We can provide support either on ongoing basis with monthly payments or for one-off projects.
Clients who opt for insurance as part of the HELP! package will also benefit from cover for health and safety prosecutions.
