Get ready for Brexit

If you’re a small business trying to get ready for Brexit, it’s important you continue to manage health and safety risks in your workplace. Health and safety law will not change after Brexit, whatever the scenario.

We have made arrangements to ensure our health and safety laws and the protection they provide will stay the same after Brexit.

You should continue to manage health and safety in a proportionate way, so everyone can go home healthy and safe. Our practical advice and guidance, health and safety made simple: the basics for your business, will help you to comply with the law.

Our Brexit website provides useful sources of information on a range of topics to help you get ready whatever industry you work in.

Working together to protect your workers, keeping them healthy and safe, is an integral part of our #WorkRight campaign. We want to help you succeed, as good health and safety is good for your business.

You can stay informed by signing up to our newsletter to receive information on health and safety basics.

In the meantime, the government has said it hopes the UK can leave the EU with a deal on 31 October 2019. You can view the Prime Minister’s letter setting out the government’s proposal for a new Protocol on Ireland and Northern Ireland here.
