Many health and safety regulations now have to be enforced by all employers and they are legally obliged to abide by the regulations that are in place which relate to their specific industry. Some health and safety laws probably won?t apply to certain industries but will apply to others; if an employer is unsure about the health and safety regulations that regulate the health and safety issues in their industry it is their responsibility to seek further guidance. Employers must also ensure that the work place is risk assessed by a competent person so they can identify the areas in which risks are present that could be a hazard and check the health and safety rules regarding the risks in the workplace.
