UNITED Kingdom health and safety law is both long and complex - and can be open to wide interpretation. This quiz is designed to give a general overview of some of the regulations and to help practices comply with them. For each question, the answers cannot be completely comprehensive, so the relevant act or regulation which would normally apply has been quoted. It must be appreciated, however, that by the very nature of the subject, a health and safety breach may extend to any number of regulations.
