Legislation Advice

The law requires that you provide all information, instruction and training as needed to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety of all your employees.

There are 16 Acts of Parliament and over 200 Statutory Instruments covering health and safety law in the UK.

Over 200 people are killed each year in accidents at work, over one million people are injured, over two million people suffer illnesses caused by, or made worse by, their work.

Competent employees are valuable resources. Providing health and safety information and training helps you to ensure your employees are not injured or made ill by the work they do and develops a positive health and safety culture, where safe and healthy working becomes second nature to everyone.

Alternatively, Black & White (UK) Ltd. (Training Services)can train you or members of your workforce to be the Appointed Person to carry out the role.

Don’t forget – insurance does not normally cover all associated costs
