The Management of Health and Safety at Work
Rregulations 1999

These regulations came into force on the 29 December 1999 and implement European Health and Safety Directives regarding employers obligations in respect of health and safety for workers. There are various regulations contained within the legislation all aimed at making sure the workplace is safe.

 

Regulation 3 requires all employers to make suitable and sufficient risk assessments of the risks to the health and safety of their employees. Once the risk assessment has been carried out and if any risks are identified the employer must try to diminish the risks identified.

 

Regulation 13 requires the employer to make sure all employees have adequate health and safety training and are capable enough at their jobs to avoid risk. Training is required upon induction, when job responsibilities change or a new system of work takes place.

 

Regulation 14 requires employees to use machinery, equipment, dangerous substances or other equipment in accordance with the training and instruction which have been provided. The employee is also under a duty to inform the employer of anything which the employee considers may represent a danger to health and safety.

 

 

 

 

Legislation contained in The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 require employers to make sure their employees are safe and provide a series of general duties to set up a safe system of work.
