Workplace environment

Susie MunroEditor's message: Your duty to ensure the health, safety and welfare of your employees requires you to identify and control risks arising from the workplace environment.

The risks will vary depending on the nature of your workplace; they could be associated with the physical environment, such as confined spaces or extremes of temperature, or they could arise from the behaviour of colleagues or members of the public, for example violence or harassment.
