Water cooler requirement?

Question asked by Richard
Question

Is it true that UK businesses are required by law to provide employees with drinking water?

response from John Englund

Actually it's true! A 1992 Workplace Regulation stipulates that "an adequate supply of wholesome drinking water shall be provided for all persons at work in the workplace" and that employers must also "provided a sufficient number of suitable cups".

The easiest way to satisfy this requirement is to install a water cooler/dispenser in your place of business. You can choose from a bottled water cooler or a plumbed in water dispenser. Check with suppliers and compare quotes to get yourself the best possible deal.
