With many seasonal jobs being filled at this time of year, it is important that employers protect the health and safety of gig economy, agency and temporary workers.
Workers are as likely to have an accident in their first 6 months at work as during the whole of the rest of their working life.
We have further advice around protecting those who are new to the job, including 6 ways to protect new starters.
Our website has guidance to help users and suppliers of agency and temporary workers understand their health and safety responsibilities.
If you are an agency or temporary worker your health and safety is protected by law and employment businesses (agencies) have a duty to make sure they follow it.
