Changes to health and safety law for self-employed

The Government recently made changes to Health and  Safety Law in regard to the self-employed.

It now says that if you are self-employed and your work activity poses no potential risk to the health and safety of other workers or members of the public, then health and safety law will not apply to you.

Members should bear in mind that unless they are playing alone then they may still pose potential risk to others (e.g. noise levels, electrical equipment, slips & trips etc). Members engaging other musicians need to ensure any potential risks are covered.

Some venues may still require that you provide a personal risk assessment, which could be a contractual requirement.

Please see attached for an MU template risk assessment form.
