Workplace Health

Workplace HealthThe wide ranging requirements of the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 and the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH), together with continuing introduction of European, Government and Local Authority directives on workplace health, safety and welfare in the workplace, puts ever increasing pressure on Employers and Building Managers. They bear a growing burden of responsibility, but may lack specialist knowledge and technical resource needed to discharge it.

Under COSHH and the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 employers are required to make suitable and sufficient risk assessments associated with the tasks undertaken in the workplace, be that a general office environment or an industrial process. These assessments must be kept up to date and record documentation must be maintained.
