Health and Safety

The Covid19 pandemic has created many serious health and safety issues in the workplace, not just on the frontline but in all areas of work across the country.

PanLaw’s experienced barristers and solicitors can advise employers as to what steps they must take to ensure the health and safety of their employees and workers and reduce the risk of employment or personal injury claims being brought against them. PanLaw can also advise employees and workers as to their rights under UK health and safety legislation and common law.

PanLaw can advise and represent employees who have been dismissed or suffered other forms of detriment because they have raised legitimate Covid19 health and safety concerns at work or have refused to work because of those concerns. PanLaw can also advise and represent employees who have been dismissed or suffered detriment because they have blown the whistle on their employer’s health and safety failings.

PanLaw can also advise and represent employees who have suffered or may have suffered as a result of being provided with inadequate Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) or because of other inadequate health and safety measures at work.

PanLaw can also advise and represent employees who have suffered stress, including Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, as a result of their experiences of working at this time on the frontline.

PanLaw can also advise employers as to their potential criminal as well as civil liability if they breach Health and Safety laws.
