Health and Safety Solicitors
Sills & Betteridge have a team of highly experienced lawyers who are able to advise you on a wide range of regulatory issues.
The Health & Safety at Work Act 1974 sets out obligations on businesses to ensure the health, safety and welfare at work of all employees and third parties affected by their business. Many additional regulatory laws have been enacted, exposing business managers to potential personal liability when a breach occurs. These regulations can apply to almost every area of any business, from the lowest risk office to the most hazardous chemical plant.
As the use of technology and the value of information data in commerce develop, data protection is becoming an increasingly important concern for your business. The law governing data protection can be strict and the consequences of breaching your obligations can be costly to both your reputation and your finances. Our experienced regulatory lawyers can help you to ensure compliance with data protection laws and assist in dealing with the consequences of a breach should the worst happen.
We frequently help clients with a wide range of regulatory issues including:
- advice on all health & safety legal issues, including prosecutions and appeals, investigations by HSE or Local Authorities, ISO 9000/OHSAS Health and Safety management systems, and setting up policies and procedures
- advice on competition, anti-bribery and anti-corruption laws
- compliance with domestic law on data protection and the transfer of personal data overseas
- interviews and representation at court for all areas of regulatory law
