Safety first. Don’t ignore it

Investigations by the Territorial Labour Inspectorate (ITM) or Romanian General Inspectorate for Emergency Situations (IGSU) have the potential to cause huge cost and disruption to your business. Aside from the criminal consequences, including more recently custodial sentences, a prosecution may also have far reaching commercial effects which may impact on the company’s share price, insurability, ability to attract investment/ partners, product range and activities, employee morale and recruitment.

We provide strategic advice on risk management and regulatory compliance as well as providing a rapid response in the event of significant health and safety incidents causing serious injury and death, which give rise to the potential for large fines and criminal prosecution.
