What are the key provisions of the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999?

The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 (SI 1999/3242), which apply to all premises in which people are employed to work, require that all employers carry out routine and follow-up risk assessment exercises to identify and minimise hazards. Employees must be informed of the risks they face as they go about their daily activities, and be trained in the procedures to be followed to avoid or reduce those risks.
