Some of your employees may have particular requirements in relation to taking steps to protect their health and safety from potential hazards and risks in the workplace, for example young workers, new or expectant mothers, people with disabilities and lone workers. You also need to think about what steps you need to take to identify and control the health and safety risks to any homeworkers – they might be at home but you’re still responsible for assessing the risks to their working environment there. In addition, you should take appropriate steps to control your contractors. You still owe health and safety duties even when contractors are doing the work on your behalf, so you will have to decide what you need to do to effectively manage and supervise the work of contractors.
Use our information and documentation here to help you understand and comply with your obligations to assess and control the risks to various special categories of worker and to manage your contractors.
