Protecting your Outdoor Workers in the Sun

The sunshine is here at last and whilst we all enjoy the warmer weather there are a number of important issues you need to consider as an employer.  During the summer months, if you employ outdoor workers you have a legal obligation to protect them from the sun.

Under Section 2 of the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974, you have a duty of care to provide staff with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and sun protection falls within this category.
