With Peninsula Business Safe, you will benefit from an insurance policy, to protect against legal expenses in the event of enforcement action by the Health & Safety authorities. We believe in prevention rather than cure and that’s why we are there 24/7 for our clients to provide the highest levels of advice and experience in managing your Business Safety needs. However, should you be subject to an enforcement action by the Health & Safety authorities and you have followed Peninsula’s advice, you will be protected against legal expenses.
We take out a health and safety insurance policy on your behalf, with an insurer authorised and regulated by the FCA. This policy provides payment of legal costs when defending criminal prosecutions which can be very costly. Principally, this would relate to summonses under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 and would also fund the legal cost of raising appeals against Prohibition or Improvement Notices, support for interviews under caution or when enforcement action is being contemplated by the Enforcement Authority.
