Who is responsible for health and safety in the workplace?

Get answers to all your questions and find out more about health and safety from our trusted associates!


The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 imposes very strict rules on owners, partners, directors and employers. Unlike other responsibilities, these obligations cannot be contracted out.


Employers are responsible for providing safe and healthy workplace conditions and the right systems and methods for safe activities.


Employees also have a vital part to play in the equation. They need the right knowledge and the right attitude to ensure this knowledge is implemented. This demands proper training in the basics of health and safety, as well as specific training for individual tasks.


Here are some links to our associates, which we believe are excellent resources for anyone interesting in finding out more about health and safety. Please do not hesitate to contact us on 01289 303333 for more information.
