This page links directly to the HSE Guidance – RSS Feed and provides Advice, guidance, news, templates, tools, legislation, publications from Great Britain’s independent regulator for work-related health, safety and illness in the workplace. 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.
The HSE owns a significant amount of primary and secondary legislation. The primary legislation comprises the Acts of Parliament, including the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974. The secondary legislation is made up of Statutory Instruments (SIs), often referred to as ‘regulations’. It is enforced by HSE and Local Authorities (LAs). HSE and LAs work locally, regionally and nationally, to common objectives and standards.
The website legislation.gov.uk provides access to UK legislation online. This HSE Guidance – RSS Feed provides latest changes to Legislation and gives good guidance to ensure you adhere to the law.
