What contractual terms will exist between an employer and its employees with regard to health and safety?
An employee's contract of employment will contain a number of express terms, agreed between the parties. These may include terms dealing with health and safety issues, such as obligations with regard to health and safety rules, personal protective equipment, and alcohol and drug use.
