Changes in Health and Safety Legislation

The Health and Safety at Work Poster is Changing
The original 1989 Regulations required employers to write on to the poster the contact details for the local health and safety enforcing authority office and Employment Medical Advisory Service (EMAS) office or give each employee the approved leaflet. This latest change means you will not have to add these details and the poster is being redesigned. Old posters do not have to be replaced straight away but any new or replacement posters should be of the new type.
