2. The Workplace Health, Safety and Welfare Regulations 1992: Employers are obligated to offer training and free Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to their staff.

3. The Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992: Employers are required to mitigate manual handling risks and provide weight specifications for items handled by employees.

4. The Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998: This regulation mandates that employers ensure the safety and maintenance of work equipment and provide adequate training to the users.
