Information and consultation on health and safety

Overview

Key points

  • Employers are required to provide information (and instruction, training and supervision) in order to ensure the health and safety of their employees whilst at work.
  • The information must be provided either directly to the employees, to trade-union-appointed safety representatives or to representatives elected by a group of employees for the purposes of consulting on health and safety-related matters.
  • Employers are obliged to consult with their employees on any health-and-safety-related matters.
  • Consultation on all health and safety matters must take place 'in good time'. This is down to the employer's judgment.
