Health and Safety reform

There are some important proposed reforms to the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 that relate to plant (e.g, machines, vehicles and equipment) and structures (e.g. scaffolding and excavations)  which are designed to provide greater clarity around rules and regulations allowing businesses to manage their risks better and keep people safer and healthier.   These changes are as a result of a public consultation during 2019 and a draft of the new regulations are anticipated to be in place by 2022 allowing businesses time to prepare.

Employee wellness is an important element of creating healthier work environments. Proactive initiatives such as subsidised flu vaccines are part of supporting our employees to stay healthy and well.
Another element is work-related health. Work can impact on workers' mental or physical health, and their health may in turn impact on their safety at work, or the safety of others.
