Guidance on workplace safety

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has issued guidance on the Brexit transition period until 31 December 2020, while negotiations with the EU take place about the future relationship.

During this transition period your duty to manage risk well and proportionately does not change, and the law concerning these obligations remains the same. 

The HSE’s Health and Safety Made Simple guide provides useful information to help you manage the risks in your business in a proportionate way. This includes:

  • Choosing who to manage health and safety in your business
  • How to prepare a health and safety policy, and risk assessments
  • How to choose insurance
  • Reporting accidents and illness
  • Information and training

The HSE has full guidance and resources explaining what your health and safety obligations on their website.
