Health and Safety Regulations in the Workplace

Equal treatment of men and women may be limited by statutory provisions which require men and women to be treated differently e.g. maternity requirements.

 However the broad duties placed on employees by the Health and Safety at Work etc, Act 1974 makes no distinctions between men and women.

Section 2(1) requires employers to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health and safety and welfare at work of all employees.
