Advice and representation from trusted professionals on health and safety law

Health and Safety at work is a significant concern for both employers and employees. This area has been increasingly regulated in recent years and employers must keep up to date with their obligations and ensure that they are compliant with health and safety regulations. The Health & Safety Authority (HSA) has overall responsibility for the administration and enforcement of health and safety management in the workplace. The HSA monitors compliance with health and safety legislation, carries out routine inspections, investigates accidents and has the power to take action against employers for non-compliance with health and safety regulations. Non-compliance can give rise to personal liability in some cases and may result in workplace closures. Our solicitors provide specialist advice in all aspects of health and safety law.
