Members of chambers act for and against the Health and Safety Executive, the Environment Agency, local authorities, companies and individuals in these discrete but specialist areas of law.
In health and safety work we act in cases from the most serious offences involving fatalities to non-fatal accidents and technical breaches in all manner of settings, including retail environments, restaurants, construction sites and residential homes. We are also able to appear at inquests and in statutory appeals.
We also appear on behalf of environmental health departments and those being investigated or prosecuted in respect of food safety and hygiene matters. We have appeared in cases across the spectrum of this complex and demanding area of law, from unlicensed slaughterhouses and serious outbreaks of salmonella poisoning to standard breaches of specified EU provisions and mislabelling.
