The high cost of payouts due through personal injury liability can cripple or even bankrupt a business. As such, reducing liability as much as possible is of great importance.
Under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 (HSW Act), the employer is held to have a duty of care for their employees. This is the basis for liability in cases such as these.
The exact form that this duty of care takes varies based on your business: the sort of personal injury that an employee might suffer on a building site is different to that in an office.
Nevertheless, our qualified staff will assess your current business practices to ensure that you are fully meeting the standards required by this duty of care.
