Health & Safety

What legal issues should I be aware of?

Health and safety has become somewhat derided in recent years as being an unnecessary bureaucratic burden on business, but the health and safety legislation is a cornerstone of the workplace, public spaces and buildings and in leisure activities. Whether you are an employer, owner or manager of a business or organisation, or an employee or user of a facility, it is important to be fully aware of the health and safety legal environment and to comply with the law.

If you are an employer and fail to meet health and safety requirements, the punishments are severe. You can be fined heavily and your reputation will suffer.
