About K&L Gates - Workplace Health & Safety
K&L Gates’ safety team has the depth of experience and expertise needed to help clients effectively manage complex and large-scale workplace fatalities, accidents and crisis situations. Their national team has been centrally involved in the crisis management response, Coronial Inquests and prosecutions that followed a large number of workplace tragedies. This unparalleled experience translates to their responsive and multi-dimensional approach to managing internal and external stakeholders, regulators and media whilst ensuring that organisational and officer liability is minimised.
They work collaboratively with their in-house clients and colleagues to help navigate complex workplace investigations through relationships with regulators and understanding of their coercive powers.
They frequently act for clients who have serious workplace accidents or incidents.
Their goal is to avoid prosecution. However, if charges are laid, they have the experience in managing regulatory prosecutions to assess, negotiate and resolve these matters efficiently and in an outcome-focused manner.
They provide compliance advice to a range of organisations to help them understand and discharge their obligations under safety legislation. They also offer bespoke client briefings and tailored training programs for officers in due diligence obligations.
The risk of psychological injuries in workplaces and the consequential challenges that arise in relation to managing safety effectively in large and complex workplaces, is an emerging issue on which government and regulators are heavily focused. The K&L Gates' team has expertise in assisting organisations to develop safety systems to manage psychosocial hazards and frameworks to investigate complaints that give rise to psychosocial harm.
