Health and safety

Information for both businesses and workers on their rights and responsibilities that affect health and safety at work.


All workers are entitled to work in environments where risks to their health and safety are properly controlled.

Under health and safety law, the primary responsibility for this is down to employers. Employers have a duty to consult with their employees, or their representatives, on health and safety matters.
