What We Do
We are Australia’s largest specialist workplace firm.
We make our clients’ workplaces safe, efficient, legal & logical. We help them protect their greatest assets – their people, their brands, & their businesses.
We do this by knowing them & their businesses inside-out, & by sharing the very best legal insights & knowledge so they can make the best decisions to achieve their goals.
Workplace Health & Safety - Our workplace health & safety lawyers eat, breathe and sleep safety and compliance. We help businesses comply with the law and put systems in place to enable all workplaces to operate safely.
Safety is a vital component of your workplace; we work with our clients to do everything necessary to try to prevent workplace incidents, but when they do occur, we are there to guide and defend them throughout the legal processes.
We are proud to say we’ve been through a lot with our clients.
We work through workplace incidents as well as coronial inquests in relation to public safety issues and concerns. Our team is well-versed in dealing with a range of regulators in a variety of jurisdictions including safety, rail, heavy vehicle and environment. We regularly liaise with police, coroners and specialist authorities.
We are well aware that safety issues can have a wide range of serious implications for our clients’ businesses. There are important big picture matters like brand and reputational issues to be considered. Often, the considerations are materially significant.
Through tailored education and training and in-the-moment guidance, we give pragmatic insights and advice into the latest legal and industry developments, and are there by your side to guide you as you respond quickly to workplace incidents and issues.Find out more
Our partnership with Formwork Industry Association
Our familiarity with the formwork industry means we can assist FIA members to run and grow their operations. Given the focus of the FIA on safety standards in the industry and the ever increasing regulatory and compliance obligations on formwork businesses, we can assist members by identifying and addressing their WHS legal requirements with an emphasis on proactive strategies for compliance and incident prevention.
Our workplace offering extends to preparing WHS policies and compliance programs, conducting in-house training, advising clients on their rights and responsibilities in the event that an incident occurs and liaising with the relevant safety regulator, police and coroner during investigations
