Health and Safety regulations and the welfare of your employees
As an employer you have responsibilities to ensure that the working conditions you provide for your employees comply with Health and Safety Legislation.
The Health and Safety Executive is responsible for the regulation of almost all the risks to health and safety arising from work activity in Britain.
The Department of Health provides guidance to employers on the standards which they should maintain in relation to employing migrant workers in the NHS.
Some of the advice these bodies provide can also be relevant to other organisations, particularly in relation to the employment of workers from the new EEA states.
