Health & Safety Compliance

At Ius Laboris, we work to ensure that everyone in your corporation, at each level, plays their part in making the workplace conform to safety standards. This includes ensuring that proper audits and risk assessments are completed, whilst also making sure policies are in place to protect staff against immediate health and safety risks.  In the event of a OHS incident, we help you navigate the legal process. Our lawyers provide practical and strategic advice to help you skilfully litigate the case.

International Workplace Safety

At Ius Laboris, we know that staying at the forefront of occupational health and safety legislation is more complex if your organisation has an international presence. This is why we work to provide local advice in our role as specialised practitioners, whilst offering coordinated assistance to multinational organisations on issues that cross jurisdictions. On top of this, our “Managing a Serious Accident at Work”  publication helps employers in 18 countries understand their liabilities in the event of an accident and sets out some key post-accident steps to take.
