Every business in the UK should own a copy of this essential publication!

The Handbook will provide you with all the essential information you need on legislation, regulation, policy, case law and best practice.Information is presented in plain English, and broken down into separate A-Z sections containing legislative summaries, key points, checklists and sources of further information. This easy reference publication has been designed to give you accurate, up-to-date information, on the spot.
All the guidance is written and compiled by our team of expert editors, including top law firms, surveyors, safety consultants and regulatory bodies.

This year we have introduced a number of comment pieces to the Handbook so that as well as the information, facts and guidance offered by the 150 chapters, you will also gain an insight into what the legal experts think, particularly of new legislation.

What our readers’ say:

“The information provided on all aspects of employment law and health and safety legislation has been a key asset towards ensuring that our organisation is compliant and aware of current and future changes.”

Liz King, Scynexis Europe Ltd

“I rarely get excited about things to do with health and safety anymore as it can be tedious hunting for information. But this book is like the bible, it is so well compiled, easy to use and understand.”

Mike Booth, Jones Lang La Salle
