Health & Safety

A&L Goodbody has over 30 years of market-leading experience in Health & Safety law. We advise on compliance with companies' health and safety obligations (including PSCS and PSDP obligations), and we assist companies with effective responses to enforcement action. Our experienced team offers timely, focussed and commercial advice on taking effective action when an incident occurs, including fatalities. We advise on the immediate steps to be taken, interactions with the HSA, and the conduct of internal investigations. Advice on issues of legal privilege, and individual representation for managers and directors, are also part of our expertise.
