Health & Safety after Brexit

There are some things that #Brexit won’t change for small businesses. Like your health and safety responsibilities to #workright

While small businesses will be trying to get ready for Brexit at the end of October, health and safety need not be top of your to do list. Here’s why…

When the UK leaves the European Union health and safety responsibilities in the workplace, to make sure everyone can go home healthy and safe, will not change. Whatever the scenario.

This is because minor amendments have been made to the existing regulations. For example, EU references have been removed. So these legal requirements, and the protections these provide, will be the same as they are now.

After Brexit you should continue to manage your business and employees in a proportionate way to reduce risk and protect people. But it does not need to be time consuming or costly.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are there to provide simple, practical advice on how to work right and comply with the law. Good health and safety is good for business. 

Working together to protect your workers, keeping them healthy and safe, is an integral part of #WorkRight. We want to help your business succeed. 

We know you will be keen to understand how else Brexit will affect your business. So we also hope to provide useful sources of information on a range of topics to help you get ready for Brexit.

Britain is doing a great job. This is one of the world’s safest places to work. The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are there to make sure that doesn’t change.
