Consultation Summary

NameProposals for amendments to the Health and Safety Information for Employees Regulations 1989
DescriptionThis Consultative Document sets out proposals for amending the Health and Safety Information for Employees Regulations (HSIER) 1989. These regulations require employers to provide information to their employees relating to health, safety and welfare at work, generally by display of a poster or alternatively by giving out leaflets. The proposed amendments would allow HSE to approve and publish new posters and leaflets which do not require the addition of updating of information by businesses displaying them, so reducing an unproductive burden, whilst maintaining or improving employees' access to useful information. The proposed amendments would also permit employers to continue to display their existing posters or give out existing leaflets, provided they are readable and provide up-to-date information on contacting the enforcing authority and EMAS.
DatesFrom 19 May 2008 at 00:00 to 11 Aug 2008 at 23:59. The results were published on 04 Feb 2009.
