Legal Requirements...

The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 , also referred to as HASAW or HSW, is the primary piece of legislation covering occupational health and safety in the United Kingdom. The Health and Safety Executive is responsible for enforcing the Act and a number of other Acts and Statutory Instruments relevant to the working environment.

The Health and Safety at Work Act places a duty on an employer to ensure the health, safety and welfare at work of all his/her employees and to safeguard others affected by the work. If you have five or more employees you must have a written policy statement and make employees aware of it.

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations require that Risk Assessments be carried out. They should identify significant hazards arising from your work activities and introduce controls to minimise risks to employees or others that may be subject to them. Furthermore, these Regulations require the nomination of a competent person. The team at Ryedale Safety Management  'RSM' have the recognised credentials and  skills to be that competent person.
