Business compliance: Health and safety

If your business employs staff or contractors or receives visitors, in addition to employment law obligations, there are a number of health and safety obligations that you need to consider. 

All workers, whether employed or self-employed, are entitled to work in a safe environment. The requirements for complying with this obligation are very broad. 

In addition, if your business has premises and you employ staff and volunteers, then you need to consider fire safety and the obligations imposed by the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005.
