Health and Safety
Whether you are a business, public sector agency or not for profit, you need to understand the specialist Health & Safety legislation, and the procedures you must have in place to prevent – or minimise the risks of – accidents occurring.
When an accident does happen, you need access to expert advice on how to handle investigations and deal with WorkSafe New Zealand and – in some cases – the courts.
Our Litigation team can explain the technical and legal requirements of the law and help you to meet compliance. We can also help review and update your contracts to manage risk and verify that you have the right systems, policies and procedures in place to avoid workplace accidents.
