The Government has given a very clear commitment to protect workers’ rights as the United Kingdom leaves the European Union. This includes health and safety in the workplace. The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 has led to the United Kingdom having one of the best records on health and safety at work in the world. We see no reason why this should change as the country leaves the EU.
The Government’s ambitious and modern Industrial Strategy sets out a long-term plan that will enable the UK to work more productively and boost the earning power of people, businesses, places and the nation as a whole.
