1c Status Remit and Rationale

The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act, 1974, places a duty on employers that they must supply their employees with the information necessary to carry out their duties safely. This National Guidance supports and enables employers to meet this duty. Where an employer wishes to use the guidance as their “employer guidance”, they should formally adopt it.
