Health and Safety Law in Rural Business
Advising clients on health and safety for agricultural and rural businesses for over 30 years.
The agricultural sector of the economy is recognised as presenting particular health and safety challenges. There are many hazardous working environments and the potential for accidents is high.
Our team of experienced lawyers has been advising clients, including farmers and other rural businesses, on health and safety issues for over 30 years. We have the expertise to advise and represent you in cases of workplace injuries or fatalities.
Our specialist solicitors can assist you with incident management and reporting as well as liability issues. We can support you if there is an investigation by the Health and Safety Executive or other bodies, including advising on your rights and duties where there is a request for information or an interview under caution. We can represent you at fatal accident inquiries or, in the event of a prosecution, at Magistrates’ courts.
The best policy for maintaining health and safety at work is to have a system of managing risk in a proactive and considered way.
