Environmental Services are at a high risk of environmental, health and safety (EHS) issues frequently becoming litigious, with many becoming high-profile cases that attract negative attention for the businesses involved. Companies that breach health and safety law are being hit with financial penalties costing millions of pounds.
With many new rules and frequently emerging and evolving regulations to navigate, the scope for what could become a court claim is enormous, resulting in a high likelihood that your business will be involved in legal proceedings at some point or another. Therefore, it is imperative to put a plan in place to protect the company against potential risks and be best prepared to defend the business and employees against legal disputes.
Many environmental services businesses have safety protocols in place. Still, often these are printed off in a hard copy user guide and filed away, never to see the light of day again. Unfortunately, this means that safety management processes are only sometimes followed by management or staff out on the ground, resulting in the likelihood of a high volume of health and safety incidents taking place. Due to the nature of the job, it is often difficult for companies to carry out audits to identify whether or not the business is being compliant, opening up a huge risk for potential litigation where the firm would not be able to substantiate any of its claims of following correct procedure should an incident happen.
Firms must review their strategy around managing risk and health and safety compliance to reduce any high-risk areas, lessening the chances of future criminal or civil liability claims being brought against the firm.
