This leaflet is for employers and those who want some basic information on what they must do to make sure their businesses comply with health and safety law. It will help people decide who's responsible for health and safety, write a health and safety policy, control the risks, consult employees, provide training and information, provide the right workplace facilities, make first-aid arrangements and report accidents, display the law poster and get insurance for their business.

The revised version has brought the advice up to date and clarified some of the key messages but the guidance on complying with the law has not been fundamentally changed.

If you are a small or medium-sized business, whether new to health and safety or an experienced or expanding business, when you see the H&S ABC logo you will know that these tools and pieces of guidance have been specifically designed with you in mind.
