Health and Safety

All UK organisations are required by law to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees as far as is reasonably practicable while at work.

Your organisation will already have relevant policies, measures and training in place around matters such as manual handling, preventing accidents and injuries, first aid, working with machinery and equipment, at height or with display screen equipment. For more information, guidance and support materials around health and safety at work, visit the Health and Safety Executive website.
