Safety law - information for employees

‌Employers have a legal duty under the Health and Safety Information for Employees Regulations 1989 to make employees aware of their legal rights and obligations under health and safety law.  This has to be done by either displaying an HSE approved safety law poster in the workplace or by providing an HSE approved leaflet. 

Posters are displayed in the majority of buildings around the University but may not be available in every single work location.  For that reason, we make the leaflet below available.  This can be viewed online but can also be printed and distrbuted to new staff if required. The poster, in A3 format, can be purchased via the HSE website.
