As one of Scotland's leading personal injury solicitor firms, Thompsons understands the devastating effect that a lack of health and safety procedures at work can have on individuals and their families.
That's why we are proud to support the work of Scottish Hazards, a charity which aims to reduce work-related injury, ill-health and fatalities by developing awareness and knowledge of health and safety practices and increasing worker involvement to bring about positive change.
Working to prevent work-related personal injury
As well as campaigning for fairer, safer, healthier and greener workplaces, the charity also provides a free, confidential advice line for those who have been injured at work and anyone who feels their place of work is not a safe place to be.
Promoting the message that "trade union workplaces are safer workplaces", Scottish Hazards assists non-trade-unionised workplaces and provides training seminars and an annual conference to provide a platform for campaigning and also to highlight the most pertinent and urgent health and safety issues.
Thompsons working with Scottish Hazards
Laura Blane, partner at Thompsons, is a prominent supporter and trustee of Scottish Hazards. She says, "Over the years, my day-to-day work at Thompsons has shown me the tragic consequences of poor health and safety management in work places across Scotland.
"It is my strong belief that education is key in the fight against unsafe working practices and that all concerned employees and victims of bad practice must have free and accessible resources available to them whenever necessary. Scottish Hazards is a prominent provider of such resources and provides a campaigning voice that will stand up for and call for change."
