Our trainers are often asked on courses whether Brexit will have an impact on health and safety or food safety law. Additionally, it makes good business sense to have plans in place to manage any potential changes.

Both the Food Standards Agency and Health and Safety Executive point out that leaving the European Union does not mean that the high health and safety and food safety standards we currently have within the UK will change. However, they are also aware of the uncertainty that many businesses face and the need to be prepared for any potential changes.

Both agencies have provided helpful pages containing guidance for businesses to assist them to plan how they may manage any changes.

The pages can be found by clicking the links below.
