Guernsey's Health and Safety Legislation

Share this page

Guidance is provided to assist employers, employees and self-employed workers to comply with Guernsey's health and safety legislation.

Following guidance is not compulsory, but employers and self-employed workers can demonstrate that they comply with the legal requirements by following the HSE guidance or industry best practice. HSE in Guernsey deem that, where Guernsey legislation is silent as to a topic, the UK regulations, ACoP and guidance provide the appropriate standard to be achieved.

Our documentation is available in alternative format (for example large print), please contact us on 01481 220010 or hse@gov.gg for further information.
