Brexit and Health & Safety

We are now in a transition period until 31 December 2020, while negotiations with the EU take place about the future relationship.

During this transition period, your duty to manage risk in the workplace will not change. Good health and safety is good for business, and it is essential that organisations manage risk well and proportionately. This will help maintain standards and keep people healthy and safe.

The HSE will keep you updated on what you need to know during the transition period. You can find out more on the HSE Brexit webpages.

We will provide further updates as they are appropriate.
