The Health and Safety at Work (Hazardous Substances) Regulations 2017 is in force as of 1 December 2017.  The change has seen hazardous substances legislation shift from the Hazardous Substances and New Organisms Act 1996 to now be fully covered by the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015. As of 1 December 2017, these changes are compulsory and employers (and PCBUs) need to understand what the changes mean for their business. What are hazardous substances? Why manage hazardous substances? What should employers do?
