Health and Safety Questions and Answers is a practical handbook providing best practice solutions to a comprehensive set of frequently asked questions about health and safety. This book explains and covers approved codes of practice, legal requirements and the latest guidance on a wide range of health and safety topics.

Although employment environments may differ, the laws that apply are generally the same and employers need to adapt solutions and procedures to suit their way of working. The end result must always be to minimise risk and reduce the likelihood of harm to individuals.
