Health and Safety

We are Stibbe Health and Safety specialists

No matter how complex or contentious the matter, our team will evaluate the issue from every perspective to find an effective health and safety solution.

Health and Safety

Health and safety is an area with both complex legislation and regulatory enforcements. Our in-depth experience in these matters provides clients with clear, pragmatic solutions in the most challenging cases.

A core part of our expertise is in the applicable regulations for the various areas in which our clients operate. For example, we provide clear, concise advice on what can be complex health and safety regulations concerning working conditions for asbestos, employees in factories and security plans.

In addition to these more traditional health and safety matters, we also handle  matters including the obligations to mention the exact radiation values of Wi-Fi on mobile phones, assessing the safety buffer around a nuclear power plant and whether the blades of a wind turbine are at a safe enough distance from car routes, homes and companies. In addition, our specialists act on food safety matters.

Grondwettelijk Hof vernietigt versoepeling landschappelijk waardevol agrarisch gebied!

Articles - De Codextrein is niet onbesproken. Reeds een aantal van de bepalingen die werden ingevoerd door de Codextrein stuitten op een ferme "njet" van het Grondwettelijk Hof. Het nieuw ingevoegde artikel 5.7.1. VCRO blijkt hetzelfde lot beschoren te zijn. Deze bepaling strekte ertoe komaf te maken met de zeer strenge (te strenge?) rechtspraak van de Raad voor Vergunningsbetwistingen en de Raad van State inzake landschappelijk waardevol agrarisch gebied (LWAG). Benieuwd naar de draagwijdte van deze bepaling en het vernietigingsarrest? Met deze blog bent u weer helemaal mee.

Climate change litigation: Dutch Supreme Court upholds Urgenda decision

Articles - On Friday 21 December 2019, the Dutch Supreme Court dismissed the appeal of the Dutch government in the Urgenda-case, hence upholding the order of the Court of Appeal of The Hague.

As other climate cases, such as the Belgian one, are in their final stages of proceedings, this decision sets an important precedent.
