Field Law’s Occupational Health + Safety (OHS) Practice Group is designed to provide a complete service to companies, executives and safety professionals in high risk industries, particularly construction, manufacturing, petroleum, mining and forestry. Our Group provides a program of services that provides real solutions to OHS concerns and draws upon multiple disciplines and areas of knowledge to answer those concerns. The recent legislative developments that have made companies and corporate management more vulnerable to being held accountable for workplace accidents/disasters call for the qualified and experienced assistance offered by our Group.
Field Law offers the following comprehensive services:
Due Diligence Program: We understand that bad things can happen to good companies. Our Due Diligence Program is designed to prevent accidents and protect against prosecution. We work together with our clients, safety specialists and consultants, to develop a custom designed safety program for our clients.
24 hour Emergency Response Service: The most critical time for a company suffering a serious workplace accident is the first few hours immediately after the accident. The consequences to the reputation of the company or individual can be serious and long lasting. Our toll-free-24-hour Emergency Response Number (1-866-WORK-911) ensures that your company and your people get real assistance to deal with the maze of real problems that happen after a serious workplace accident.
OHS Compliance Service: Our OHS Group also provides assistance to clients experiencing difficulty with compliance issues under the Occupational Health and Safety Act, Regulations and Code. We can assist when OHS officials have given directions or orders; in cases of work refusal due to dangerous work, appeals to the OHS Council, and exemptions from the Director of Inspection.
Defence Service: Our OHS Group also provides defence services to clients charged with regulatory offences, including OHS offences and environmental offences.
