Health and safety laws are much stricter than they were in the old days, as the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has introduced new measures to try and reduce the numbers of workers that are seriously injured or killed at work. They have showed some success, the numbers have been reduced greatly over the last 20 years, but accidents at work do still happen.

Every boss throughout the UK should protect their staff members health and safety, while they are in the workplace, according the law. This also includes preventing diseases and industrial illnesses as well as one off accidents.
