Diversity in the workplace
Factors like race, gender, disability, age and work pattern may affect people's health and safety in the workplace - and sometimes health and safety is used as a false excuse to justify discriminating against certain groups of workers.
Equality Act 2010
It's important to take account of diversity and involve people when assessing risk and managing health and safety.
