Employers have a duty to ensure the health, safety and welfare at work of their employees. It would be an offence for an employer to knowingly allow an employee to work whilst under the influence of alcohol or drugs, particularly where it poses a threat to the health and safety of that employee or other people.
This Briefing Note covers the risks associated with the presence of radon gas in the workplace (also known as a naturally occurring radioactive material) and is in response to a number of recent requests from clients for further information and advice.
In this Briefing Note we have set out the main changes introduced by the new Fire Safety Act 2021 which received royal assent on the 29th April 2021 and is now an Act of Parliament.
The Act amends the Regulatory Reform (Fire Safety) Order 2005 (FSO), to ensure that people feel safe in their homes, and a tragedy like the Grenfell Tower fire never happens again.
