Guide for global employers: Health and safety

Authors: Matthew Howse and Sarah Ash, Morgan, Lewis & Bockius, LLP


  • International employers must comply with the law relating to health and safety wherever they employ staff. Health and safety issues that are regulated in many countries include the provision of health and safety information to employees, the use of equipment, risk assessments and record-keeping. Organisations should also be aware of non-statutory guidance on health and safety matters. (See Compliance)
  • Employers may wish to establish a global approach to health and safety to ensure that minimum standards apply to employees in all locations. (See Global health and safety policies)
  • Establishing a global wellbeing programme can bring many benefits to multinational employers. (See Global wellbeing programmes and health insurance)
