To keep your workplace safe, you must properly maintain your premises and provide appropriate working conditions, for example, good ventilation, a reasonable working temperature, suitable lighting, a clean workspace, floors and traffic routes kept free from obstruction, sufficient sanitary conveniences and washing facilities, etc. You also need to ensure you’re taking appropriate control measures to manage the risks in relation to particular working conditions, such as working at height and working in confined spaces. Finally, you owe duties under equality legislation to take action where a physical feature of your work premises makes it impossible or unreasonably difficult for a disabled person to access your premises and make use of your services. Our information and documentation in this section will help you ensure you meet your health, safety and welfare obligations to your employees and members of the public in relation to your premises and the working conditions and facilities that you provide.
