Business Wales is reminding employers that they must provide welfare facilities and a working environment that’s healthy and safe for everyone in the workplace, including those with disabilities.

You must have:

  • Welfare facilities – the right number of toilets and washbasins, drinking water and having somewhere to rest and eat meals
  • A healthy working environment – a clean workplace with a reasonable working temperature, good ventilation, suitable lighting and the right amount of space and seating
  • A safe workplace – well-maintained equipment, with no obstructions in floors and traffic routes, and windows that can be easily opened and cleaned

Visit the Health and Safety Executive website for advice on what must be provided for a safe and healthy workplace.
