Do health & safety laws apply to me?

Health and safety laws apply to all businesses, employers, and employees. This includes charity workers and volunteers. 

If you are self-employed and your business does not pose a threat to the health and safety of other workers or the general public, you are exempt from the laws. 

If you work in a high-risk industry (where workplace accidents are likely to take place) such as construction, agriculture, rail, or you work with harmful substances, it is worth noting that there are additional safety policies and safety practices that you are expected to uphold. This is to reduce the risk of work-related accidents taking place and provide a safe environment for your workers or any members of the public who may visit your site.
