Prioritising Health and Safety: A guide for employers


Employers have an ethical responsibility and legal obligation to ensure the safety and well-being of employees. A safe work environment protects employees from physical and emotional harm, while also promoting productivity and enhancing the overall success of your business.

Our expert understanding of the Health and Safety Executive, local authorities and other UK regulators means we can help ensure that major hazards are diligently monitored across all sectors, while maintaining a strong relationship with the relevant regulator.

Together, with our team of experienced lawyers, we have produced a Prioritising Health and Safety guide to equip employers with comprehensive knowledge on legal obligations regarding health and safety in the workplace, as non-compliance can lead to significant legal and financial repercussions and harm the reputation of the business.

Our handbook aims to provides practical information on all aspects of workplace health and safety, covering:

  • what measures employers should be taking,
  • the importance of good preparation and;
  • how to implement these measures to protect the health and safety of your workforce.

In addition to the guide, our team conducts regular "Stress Testing" of existing corporate policies and procedures. This process helps identify risks and weaknesses within your organisation's policies and procedures, enabling us to provide expert advice on necessary changes. Furthermore, we offer a tailored program of Health and Safety training for Boards, Directors, General Counsel and Senior Leadership Teams across various industries. This program ensures that you and your leadership team have a clear understanding of your health and safety obligations.

By leveraging our expertise and guidance, we aim to support employers in effectively navigating health and safety laws, while providing practical solutions to ensure a safe and secure work environment for all.
