We have specialist expertise in all aspects of work health & safety (WH&S). Our team provides practical strategies to comply with work health & safety obligations and can assist in the defence of any prosecutions which may arise, together with any regulatory investigations undertaken subsequent to an incident.

We have extensive experience in relation to, amongst other things:

  • attending site in the immediate aftermath of an incident to liaise with company personnel, and representatives of the regulator
  • responding to requests for documentation and information by the regulator
  • assisting with responses to improvement or prohibition notices
  • assisting with the drafting of incident reports and statements, mindful of future disclosure requirements
  • attending records of interview
  • representing corporate clients on prosecutions
  • appearing at hearing (whether on sentencing or defence).

We have an intimate knowledge of both state specific legislation and the federal legislation. We are acutely aware of the changes underway regarding the WH&S laws in Australia and are well positioned to advise our clients on their implications for their businesses.
