Defending against HSE prosecutions
If you are facing prosecution from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the future of your business could be at risk. Fines and penalties differ from one case to the next, but can be huge, and in addition to thousands of pounds worth of penalties, you could even face six months in prison.
We understand how daunting a prospect that can be and we are here to avoid it. We have years of experience defending cases on behalf of businesses and individuals who have been prosecuted by the HSE. Why not give us a call today and discuss your circumstances?
There are a variety of reasons why a company or individual would draw the attention of the HSE. After receiving a visit from a health and safety inspector, they could even be prosecuted.
The most common reasons for a HSE prosecution include:
- Breaches of health and safety law resulting in serious injury or death
- Poor health and safety standards and risk management
- Failure to respond to HSE warnings or an improvement or prohibition notice
- Failure to provide employees with the appropriate work wear and health and safety equipment
- Attempting to obstruct or deceive a health and safety investigator
