Health and Safety Lawyers
We defend companies, directors, supervisors, engineers and workers in all Occupational Health and Safety Act prosecutions. We also assist our clients in Ministry of Labour investigations, the appeal of stop work orders, the laying of charges and settlement.
Charges under the Occupational Health and Safety Act are very serious. Directors, owners, supervisors and workers can face jail time or a fine up to $25,000, and companies can be fined up to $500,000, as well as suffer the potentially devastating regulatory or tender effect of a health and safety violation.
Our counsel is a former Ministry of Labour prosecutor. We have the experience to defend all matters. Contact us today.
In addition, the Occupational Health and Safety Act requires an employer to prepare and review, at least once a year, an occupational health and safety policy, in writing, and create and oversee a program to implement the policy.
Furthermore, the Occupational Health and Safety Act requires an employer to enact and maintain a workplace violence policy and a workplace harassment policy.
Our firm can assist your company in developing and maintaining appropriate health and safety and workplace violence and harassment policies. Contact us today.
