A workplace accident is often an emotionally traumatic event. Unfortunately, the emotion of an accident can cause employers to fail to preserve evidence that can prove essential to defending subsequent health and safety charges.
A thorough and complete investigation is important to not only help defend possible charges, but to find out what went wrong to prevent it from happening again. We help our clients’ through what can be a difficult time in any workplace by both conducting the investigation and also by advising on what key areas they need to focus on to preserve evidence if they they are conducting the evidence themselves.
As lawyers, our investigation and resulting advice is covered by solicitor-client privilege. This means that our investigation reports and advice cannot be used by the Ministry of Labour to support charges against our client.
