Health and Safety at Work - Fire Safety Order

The main reason for health and safety legislation is to protect people at work and those who are affected by work activities.

Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 – sets out how employers, employees and the self-employed must work in a safe way, giving every person on the work premises legal duties and responsibilities. As this act is very general, subject-specific ‘regulations’ have been put in place to help every workplace to be safe.


Health and safety at work is everybody’s business; that means others in the workplace have a duty too.

Everyone in the workplace should avoid any actions that could potentially harm others, act respectfully and not cause any damage to property. You should always report any known health and safety hazards that might affect others.
