Health and Safety Defence Lawyers

To discuss your requirements please contact Jeremy Scott on 07971520407

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 sets out a number of regulations which impose a wide range of requirements on businesses. Breaches of such regulations can have a devastating effect on the reputation and income of a business and it is therefore paramount to obtain expert advice if you or your business are being investigated or prosecuted.

Lupton Fawcett has represented clients in a large number of Health and Safety Executive investigations. Our team of regulatory and corporate defence solicitors can advise you in respect of the complete range of issues from compliance through to corporate manslaughter and personal liability for directors and senior managers


If there are suspected breaches of the Health & Safety at Work Act or the supplementary regulations and legislation, then you may be interviewed under caution by the HSE.

If you are asked to attend an interview it is vital that you contact an expert solicitor to assist you as what you say during that interview may significantly effect the investigation and its outcome.

By having us as your legal representative you get the benefit of solicitors who understand what is involved in investigations and unlike many firms, are fully conversant with Police Station procedure.

HSE Improvement & Prohibition Notice

In some cases where there are alleged contraventions and breaches of the legislation the HSE will issue an Improvement Notice requiring the breach to be remedied within a certain period.

Prohibition Notices can also be served and these can restrict certain activities from being carried out until the issues identified are resolved.

If you receive an Improvement Notice or Prohibition Notice then you should seek immediate expert advice and our team can advise you on how best to proceed.
