Hierarchy of guidance

This fact sheet explains the types of guidance and information available to help people comply with the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA).

Last updated 22 April 2016


On Monday 4 April 2016, the New Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 (HSWA) came into effect.

HSWA repeals the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992, with immediate effect.

All references to the 1992 Act on this website and within our guidance will be progressively removed.
