Most of the requirements of these Regulations were not new, they simply spelt out in more detail what a responsible employer should already have been doing to comply with the requirements of the 1974 Health and Safety at Work Act.

The Health and Safety at Work act fully outlines the requirements for employers within the workplace. Full information on this legislation can be found on their website www.legislation.gov.uk a link to which you will find on your dashboard.
