Strengthen your business against breaches

Construction businesses found guilty of breaches can face significant fines and penalties.

Most breaches now carry fines that are potentially unlimited, subject to guidelines.

Courts in line with sentencing guidelines often impose large fines , even where no harm has occurred, but the risk of harm was significant. For example, companies have been fined after potentially explosive gas leaked from a rigging platform.

Workplace injuries and fatalities are an unfortunate reality facing many construction firms and Directors can find themselves being personally investigated and prosecuted. Combined with increasing environmental concerns, contractual disputes being commonplace and an unlimited personal financial liability as a Director or Officer.

  • Health and Safety investigations and enforcement action
