Hendersons - Barristers' Chambers

Health & Safety

Henderson Chambers is widely recognised for its expertise in all aspects of health and safety law and practice, and is consistently ranked as one of the leading sets for health and safety by the legal directories.

Members of Chambers have been instructed in many of the highest profile and most important cases of recent years including, for example, the prosecutions arising out of the Hatfield and Ladbroke Grove train disasters, the prosecutions and claims arising out of the Buncefield oil depot explosion, the Sellafield sentencing appeal, the Marks and Spencer asbestos prosecution, and the Grenfell Tower Inquiry.

Henderson Chambers’ Health and Safety group has been awarded Health and Safety Set of the Year at the Chambers UK Bar Awards. Members of chambers have also won individual awards at the Chambers UK Bar Awards.

The work of our health and safety group covers the full range of health and safety cases from high-profile corporate manslaughter prosecutions, to prosecutions under the HSWA, prosecutions of directors, and appeals against improvement and prohibition notices.

As well as advising and representing parties in all forms of criminal prosecution, enforcement proceedings and appeals in all courts and tribunals, our advisory and advocacy work covers private and public law proceedings, non-litigious policy issues, best practice guidance and parliamentary committees.

We provide expert representation for all areas of industry and have particular expertise in transport, agriculture, construction, business, sport and entertainment, healthcare, food and drink, pharmaceutical and the energy sectors.

We regularly advise businesses on corporate structures to ensure they comply with health and safety obligations.
