HSE publishes revised ACoP for Workplace Regulations

The HSE has issued a revamped Approved Code of Practice (ACoP) to help employers comply with the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992.

The ACoP (L24), which was originally published in 1992 alongside the set of regulations it supports, was identified for review and revision in Professor Ragnar Lofstedt's 2011 report Reclaiming Health and Safety for all.

While dutyholders' legal responsibilities are not altered, the HSE claims the code's changes will make it easier for them to understand their obligations. The Workplace Regs apply to most workplaces except those on construction sites, ships and underground in a mine.

HSE spokesperson Chris Rowe said the code would help employers with issues such as temperature, seating and workstations, and washing facilities.
