Health & Safety
Employers have a general duty under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of their employees at work. People in control of non-domestic premises have a duty towards people who are not their employees but use their premises.
The regulations expand on these duties and are intended to protect the health and safety of everyone in the workplace, and ensure that adequate welfare facilities are provided for people at work. These regulations apply to a very wide range of workplaces, not only building sites, farms, factories, shops and offices but also, for example, schools, hospitals, hotels and places of entertainment. You need to become familiar with your responsibilities and act upon them.
