health and safety

Watson Burton’s continues to maintain a strong defendant health and safety practice. The firm continues to attract new clients with a number of new instructions this year from the construction sector.

We have successfully defended one HSE prosecution during the year, having run a defence based on a rapidly developing area of health and safety law and have negotiated effective bases of plea and mitigation in other cases.

We also have a number of instructions currently at pre-prosecution stage, including fatalities with potential charges of corporate manslaughter.

We can also advise on and draft internal health and safety policy documentation.

We have the legal expertise and experience to assist Housebuilders in this significant area of business.
