Does my employer have to provide drinking water?
Yes. There's a clear duty on employers to provide drinking water at work, under the Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992. The Regulations state that an "adequate supply of wholesome drinking water" must be provided, and that it be readily available at suitable and clearly marked places. This could be provided either with a supply of suitable cups, or as a drinking fountain.
