What safety information must an employer provide for its workforce?
Every employer must provide its employees with relevant information on the risks to their health and safety identified by risk assessments and any risks notified by other employers. It must outline the preventative and protective control measures that it has adopted, as well as its procedures for serious and imminent danger and for danger areas, and make known the identity of fire wardens and other staff nominated to help in the event of an evacuation. Information on specific hazards may be required, and vulnerable groups such as young people may require additional information. The employer must also ensure that the relevant information is disseminated to temporary workers and to other employers with employees working in its business.
