UK Health and Safety Law protects you even if you are not working here legally.
The HSE has a website that will help overseas workers and their employers to understand their roles and responsibilities under British health and safety law.
The website will help you find out about your roles and responsibilities under health and safety law and find information on health and safety including your basic rights, good practice, legal standards and conditions of work.
If you are an employer or main contractor visit the HSE website and gain access to written guidance for employees who do not speak English.
Remember, health and safety is not expensive, it is priceless.
