The Management of Health and Safety at Work: Approved Code of Practice
The Health and Safety Executive for Northern Ireland (HSENI) has taken the decision to develop an Approved Code of Practice to the Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations (Northern Ireland) 2000.
The development process will take some time to complete and stakeholders will be consulted on the ACoP’s content in the normal way. The requirement for duty holders to comply with the 2000 Regulations is not affected by this decision. Duty holders can still refer to the former Great British ACoP as a guide to how to meet the requirements of the 2000 Regulations.
The 2000 Regulations require employers to implement a number of general measures for the management of health and safety, in particular to undertake risk assessment.
