Sabbir Malik started this petition to Boris Johnson (Prime Minister) and

For the past two months, I have been taking a stand against restaurants and takeaways who violate health and safety law. Specifically, Regulations 20 & 21 of the Workplace (Health and Safety) Regulations 1992, which stipulates that restaurants who provide a delivery service must provide access to toilet facilities, cold water and soap to any delivery courier who conducts any work for them. However, despite a joint letter by the Chief Executive of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and the Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State for Transport reiterating the legal requirement and even stipulating further that due to COVID-19, the regulations are even more important, restaurants have continued to violate the regulations. This is despite reminders from Deliveroo (who claim to have sent reminders to restaurants).

This petition calls for:

  • Stricter enforcement of Regs 20 & 21 as listed above
  • For food delivery service providers to be tightly regulated and for the Government to mandate that they shut down restaurants from their platform where violations occur
  • For local authorities to fine restaurant and takeaway providers who fail to adhere to the regulations 
  • For there to be stricter fines and enforcement action against restaurant and takeaway providers who fail to adhere to the regulations
