We defend Worksafe and Victoria Workcover Authority prosecutions
Being responsible for your employees’ safety and wellness is a heavy weight to bear, especially when things go wrong. But it’s not a burden you have to carry alone. We’re here to help you navigate this difficult time.
The challenges and risks ahead of you when facing an investigation or prosecution in work safety cases is daunting, and if you haven’t partnered with the right team, it can have a devastating impact on your life. Beyond the personal uncertainties you have around the proceedings, you also have long-term business consequences to think of as well.
Not only could you face hefty financial penalties or the risk of being held criminally liable and serving a prison sentence, but your business can also face significant risks, even if you’re found not guilty. The damage to your reputation that can come from a case like this can be long lasting if it’s not managed well – affecting your customers, your employees, your ability to hire and retain staff, your livelihood and your financial security moving forward.
