Birketts appoints team of ex-HSE Inspectors

Published: 11/05/2016

Birketts, the top 100 law firm, has appointed a team of former Health and Safety Executive Inspectors to help organisations manage their own health and safety. 

The team of ex-HSE Inspectors have an in-depth knowledge of how the regulator works and what it looks for it, allowing organisations to gain an unrivalled insight to the health and safety issues surrounding their business. 

Laura Thomas, partner and head of the health and safety team at Birketts, said: “Birketts’ health and safety team uniquely comprises specialist solicitors and barristers as well as expert health and safety consultants. Our team of experts can tailor their services to any organisation, industry and businesses of any size. They provide emergency response to incidents as well as day-to-day practical assistance and have the support of our team of specialist solicitors and barristers where needed.”

Laura continued: “Our approach has been crystallised after years of defending our clients in court over health and safety breaches. We have seen many times those businesses that ‘disown’ health and safety and entirely outsource it to a consultant, can get themselves into difficulties because it’s all about implementation, not just paperwork. Our team will visit your organisation to offer audits, training, accident investigation and advice, so that you gain practical assistance that is pertinent and relevant to your particular business and which can be put in place by those within your organisation. Our safety specialists stand alongside clients, offering advice and assistance that helps you to help yourselves.”
