The Health and Safety Executive is to launch a new website to better inform workers of their health and safety rights at work.
The HSE’s Workers’ WebPages have been redesigned to address key concerns for workers, including extensive information on the health and safety roles and responsibilities of employees, and the rights of agency workers.
Lord Hunt of Kings Heath will formally launch the website at the TUC conference tomorrow.
He said that the site, developed in co-operation with the TUC, would be a rich source of information on health and safety for workers.
The site also gives information and guidance to assist workers in becoming involved in health and safety decision-making, including case studies and a worker involvement assessment tool.
The revised webpages can be found at: www.hse.gov.uk/workers/index.htm
