Providing a safe working environment, protecting employees and minimising risk are important factors in any organisation’s viability and reputation. Achieving this balance can be aided by the implementation of effective, practical and proactive policies.

Even with the best procedures in place, accidents can happen. Having timely and pragmatic support from your legal adviser during investigations and any subsequent prosecutions is a vital part of managing any risk.

To ensure that our clients receive immediate advice in the event of an occupational health and safety emergency we have set up an After Hours Incident Hotline so that a senior member of our team can be contacted 24/7.

Piper Alderman’s Occupational Health and Safety team acts exclusively for employers in all aspects of health and safety law and regulation. We do not act for any state or federal government bodies that may create conflicts of interest.

As a national team we handle matters across all jurisdictions using our wide knowledge of legislation and practising in each of the states and territories.

Our approach is focussed on assisting you to minimise risk, develop effective policies, assessment programs and quality assurance material, as well as transferring core knowledge and understanding to the whole organisation.

Our clients hail from a wide range of industries including manufacturing, automotive, labour hire, health care, resources, retail, transport and the public sector. This means that we have an appreciation of a wide range of industrial settings and their specific issues.
