The heath and safety executive, also known as the HSE, thoroughly investigate any accident that occurs in the workplace, and if negligence is found they will go on to prosecute that case before the Courts.
During the course of any investigation the HSE will examine policies and procedures and may find other areas of concern which could give rise to prosecution.
It is essential for anyone facing investigation at the hands of the Health & Safety Executive to secure legal representation from the outset. In doing so we will be able to provide solicitors to attend any formal interviews with members of staff, directors and the like to ensure a sound defence is put forward.
There are often occasions where the HSE will not prosecute if certain procedures are implemented, and again our expert solicitors are able to advise you every step of the way concerning these types of scenarios.
If the Health & Safety Executive decide to prosecute then our expert solicitors will be able to defend any prosecution vehemently and as such prosecutions tend to attract media interest, it is important that proper advice and representation is sought as soon as possible.
