CIS 02-1507 Health and Safety - The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999 [United Kingdom]
These regulations (effective: 29 Dec. 1999) re-enact the 1992 regulations with the same title (see CIS 92-1754, modified by CIS 95-11), which are repealed, as are the Health and Safety (Young Persons) Regulations 1997 (CIS 97- 362). The main purpose of the Regulation is to implement with respect to Great Britain the provisions of Directive 89/391/EEC (see CIS 89-1401) concerning the obligations placed on the employer to implement preventive and protective measures on the basis of general principles of prevention. The Regulations require employers to (a) make, review and record risk assessments in workplaces; (b) make, give effect to and, in certain cases, record appropriate health and safety arrangements; (c) ensure that their employees are provided with appropriate health surveillance; (d) appoint "competent persons" to assist them with carrying out their OSH obligations; (e) establish emergency procedures; (f) provide their employees with OSH information; (g) ensure that appropriate OSH measures are carried out when their premises are shared with other employers or when outside or temporary employees are present on their premises; (h) take their employees' capabilities as regards OSH into account when entrusting tasks to them; (i) ensure that their employees are provided with OSH training and information when necessary. Modifications introduced into the 1999 re-enactment deal mostly with provisions related to the appointment of competent persons and to preparations for fire protection. Certain other related regulations are also amended.
