 Approved Code of Practice and guidance
 This Code has been approved by the Health and Safety Commission, with theconsent of the Secretary of State. It gives practical advice on how to comply withthe law. If you follow the advice you will be doing enough to comply with the lawin respect of those specific matters on which the Code gives advice. You may usealternative methods to those set out in the Code in order to comply with the law.However, the Code has special legal status. If you are prosecuted for breach of health and safety law, and it is proved that you did not follow the relevant provisionsof the Code, you will need to show that you have complied with the law in someother way or a court will find you at fault. This document also includes other, more general guidance not having this specialstatus. This guidance is issued by the Health and Safety Commission. Followingthe guidance is not compulsory and you are free to take other action. But if youdo follow the guidance you will normally be doing enough to comply with the law.Health and safety inspectors seek to secure compliance with the law and may referto this guidance as illustrating good practice. The Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations are regularly subjectto revision and amendment. You should check you have a copy of the most up-to-date statutory instrument of these regulations when applying them.
