The Health and Safety Act applies to all companies, and it is your legal responsibility to comply.
All new businesses must register for health and safety, carry out a risk assessment to prevent people being injured or harmed at work and manage their own health and safety policy.
Every business must adhere to minimum standards of comfort at work, provide free health and safety training and display certain posters and signs. All companies must comply with fire regulations, provide a first aid box and record accidents and injuries.
You may be inspected at any time, with or without notice. You could face penalties for non-compliance.
