Health and safety at work

Employers have a common law and statutory duty to their employees in respect of health and safety at work.

We are consulted on a wide range of issues arising out of these duties, mainly by employers, but also by employees who have suffered damage as a result of a breach of health and safety duties.

We regularly advise on:

  • Drafting and advising on health and safety policies
  • Bringing or defending health and safety claims at the Employment Tribunal
  • Advising on health and safety representative obligations
  • Advising on employers’ health and safety duties for employees working from home
  • Bringing and defending stress at work claims
  • Bringing and defending PI claims
  • Advising on directors’ personal liability
