Advice on providing changing rooms, provided by the British Safety Council’s Information Service.
If employees are required to change into and wear special clothing for their work – such as overalls, uniforms and thermal clothing – the employer is required under the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 to provide “suitable and sufficient facilities” (i.e. changing rooms) for them to do so.
