Employment Status: Health & Safety Considerations For Employers

Do you have the same Health & Safety obligations towards workers and employees? What about self-employed persons that you work with?

In April 2022, the Personal Protective Equipment Regulations (PPER) were updated so that employers now have to provide PPE to workers as well as employees. Regulations changes like this can be a lot to wrap your head around, but essentially it made it even more important for you to understand your Health & Safety responsibilities towards the people who work for you.

To help, HS Direct’s Health & Safety and HR & Employment Law experts have put together a free guide to cover everything you need to keep in mind, including:

  • What does the law say?
  • What are the employment status categories?
  • Employment status jargon-busting – what is a legal definition and what isn’t?
  • What are my Health & Safety obligations for employees, workers and self-employed persons?
