The main obsticle in employing workers from overseas as far as health and safety is concerned is the language barrier - as an employer, you must ensure that the same care is taken to ensure that your employees, whatever their nationality, comply with safety rules and ultimately it is up to you that they do this and understand them thoroughly .
The following link gives general advice on the employment of overseas workers.
Employers are often uncertain about their legal responsibilities to employees working abroad, because neither legislation nor official guidelines make the position clear. Generally, if your employees work in the UK and occasionally abroad then UK regulations will almost certainly apply. Fleet Health & Safety can provide you with the safety advice & risk assessments required wherever in the world you or your employees are travelling.Please call us to discuss this further.
Fleet Health and Safety can help you as much or as little as you like and we
will not sell you something you do not require. We can develop a complete health & safety system for you or just provide a health & safety policy, a full audit or help you with your reporting of an incident -it's that simple. We believe that every business is unique in its health and safety
requirements and do not operate a tied contracts system.
Please call us on 01557 335067 or 07738 788272 to discuss any
aspect of health and safety for your organisation.
