The health and safety workplace requirements apply to everyone. The specific duties and requirements will depend on the nature of the business and the risks the present to employees and members of the public.

Enforcement of health and safety legislation is undertaken by the Health and Safety Executive or the local authority in whose area a business operates.

The Health and Safety Executive deal with factories and other industrial operations; more details as well as general information on health and safety can be found on the Health and Safety Executive website.

Officers of the Food Health and Safety Team of the Environmental Health Section enforce health and safety in offices, shops, warehouses, places used for leisure activities and other non-industrial premises.
