Workplace incidents go to the very core of your business operation. When a workplace incident or crisis hits we can provide immediate, pragmatic and commercial advice to help protect our clients’ legal interests, while still managing the operational needs of the business.
Advising on all aspects of Work Health and Safety, we guide leading global organisations through all phases of incident management. This includes providing strategic advice on risk management and regulatory compliance as well as providing a rapid response in the event of significant health and safety incidents causing serious injury and death, which give rise to the potential for large fines and criminal prosecution as well as substantial reputational damage.
We work with clients on all areas of incident response including the conduct of effective internal investigations, assisting when corporate entities and senior managers face high profile and criminal investigations and potential prosecutions, and preparing clients for attendance at inquests.
As trusted advisors to our clients we are not only consulted when an incident arises but are involved on a broader basis, advising on health and safety obligations and liabilities within the statutory framework in which our clients operate.
We also provide targeted tailored training programs for clients and develop proper safety governance principles to protect their safety management systems.
