Revised HSE workplace code of practice

The Health and Safety Executive has (after consultation) reviewed and updated the Workplace Regulations Approved Code of Practice (ACOP) to make it easier for employers, and others, to understand and meet their legal obligations. While legal responsibilities to protect workers’ health and safety are not altered, “it will help employers understand the regulatory requirements on key issues such as temperature, cleanliness, workstations and seating, toilets and washing facilities”.
