Your employer has a legal duty to:
- consult about anything that may affect health and safety in the workplace
- give you, if you are being consulted directly, or your SR or RoES, the chance to state their views.
They must take account of these views when making a decision. Your employer must consult on:
- changes in working practices or procedures that could affect your health and safety
- arrangements for using qualified people to help the business comply with health and safety legislation
- information to be made available on health and safety risks in the workplace
- planning of health and safety training
- health and safety issues with new technology.
If your employer doesn't consult as the law requires, they're committing an offence.
