Working Conditions

By law, it is the responsibility of an employer to ensure that their work place is a safe place to work. Every office and factory should display Health & Safety regulations for everyone to see.  If you think your work place is unsafe speak to your supervisor or manager. If this is difficult contact Connexions.
