Health and Safety  - Free Information and Advice

Free Information and Advice


The basis of British health and safety law is the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. The Act sets out the general duties which employers have towards employees and members of the public, and employees have to themselves and to each other. The law requires good management and common sense.

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 generally make more explicit what employers are required to do to manage health and safety under the Health and Safety at Work Act. Like the Act, they apply to every work activity. The main requirement on employers is to carry out a risk assessment. Employers with five or more employees need to record the significant findings of the risk

Risk assessments should be straightforward in a simple workplace such as a typical office. It should only be complicated if it deals with serious hazards such as those in complex industrial situations.

  • The making of arrangements for implementing the health and safety measures identified as necessary by the risk assessment
  • The appointment of competent people to help them to implement the arrangements;
  • Assistance with  emergency procedures;
  • Provision of clear information and training to employees;
  • Procedures for working together with other employers sharing the same workplace.
