You’ve come to the right place. Matters relating to health and safety are often complex and challenging to approach given the legislation and the comprehensive legal framework that apply in this area. At Foyen, we have extensive experience of actual disputes in the area of health and safety law, and through our integrated approach, offer a virtually uniquely comprehensive service. We assemble all relevant legal competence in a potent team – without hierarchy – that has the capacity to manage all aspects of a project as effectively as possible. We also provide training in health and safety law for you or your colleagues.
So how can we help you? Do you need help with reviewing templates for delegating health and safety responsibilities, or are you perhaps looking for clarity in an issue regarding criminal liability? These are just two examples of the areas where we work extensively in the construction sector. Other common cases include providing advice on a variety of health and safety issues, both how they can be avoided, and how you should react when they emerge. We are also very used to working in different roles with our clients in the private and public sectors, from corporate and business management, to project leadership and taking responsibility for health and safety issues. So who are you, and how can we help?
Foyen is currently advising an electricity company on health and safety issues that have emerged during a major construction project undertaken by the company. The project involves several contractors and includes a new-build and the redevelopment of a production facility, parts of which remain operational during the work. A number of health and safety issues have emerged during the project and Foyen has provided support with, amongst other things, reviewing contracts and contract dispensation templates, as well as delegating health and safety responsibilities. We are also helping to identifying liability, and we are providing advice on matters relating to health and safety laws and regulations.
It’s about being able to provide assistance in all aspects of the sector, from risk assessment and responsibility allocation of health and safety issues, to penalties and liability. That’s why we have created a specific team for this area, with lawyers who together offer a virtually unrivalled combination of experience and legal expertise in the health and safety field.
