Health and Safety
We understand that workplace accidents have far-reaching consequences for businesses, victims, and their families. One of our primary focuses is providing assessments of health and safety policies to minimise the risk of accidents occurring in the first place; another is compliance generally with the law. We have knowledge and experience to provide an immediate and expert response when required.
When accidents do happen, we advise as to the actions that should be taken immediately following the accident and in working with Worksafe, including the response to and defence of any prosecutions.
We assist a wide range of clients, including school boards of trustees and businesses of all sizes.
Our experts can help you with:
- Undertaking audits and developing health and safety practices and policies to ensure compliance with the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 and related legislation;
- Advice on health and safety in the context of earthquake risk and the seismic strengthening of buildings;
- Advice as to drug and alcohol policies such as workplace drug testing.
