Health and Safety Executive Prosecution Defence
Our corporate client faced a Health and Safety Executive prosecution in relation to the manufacture and supply of industrial heaters. The Health and Safety Executive carried out an in depth investigation into a large number of allegedly defective heaters which our client had manufactured and supplied to a large number of businesses throughout the country.
The HSE then required a representative of the defendant company to attend for a series of interviews which were carried out in formal circumstances under caution. We assisted and advised our client when dealing with the HSE throughout the investigation, at formal interview and at the subsequent court hearing.
Successful Health & Safety Defence
As a direct result of the advice and assistance provided by us to our client we were able to massively reduce the extent and level of seriousness of the health and safety prosecution faced by the company. This resulted in a financial penalty being imposed which was significantly below that which our client had originally expected.
