    What is your employer responsible for in the office?


    In relation to workplace safety, it can be difficult for employees to answer ‘what is your employer responsible for in the office?’. In the case of accidents at work, you may need to know to determine liability. In which case, you would be wise to enlist the help of a specialist law firm, such as Accident Advice Helpline.

    What is an employer responsible for?

    Just what is your employer responsible for in the office? Of course, we all fall subject to human error every once in a while. Accidents at work occur that, really, are no one’s fault at all, so what is an employer responsible for?

    Employers have a legal obligation to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of their staff. This requires employers to do all that they can to meet their duty of care. This can include undertaking workplace assessments, thermal comfort risk assessments, and ensuring all equipment is maintained and in good working order, for example.

    The employer also has a duty of care to all others who enter the workplace. Successful application of this duty of care will minimise the risk of work-related accidents for all.

    Employers must consult with staff regarding health and safety issues, offer training and inductions, and provide thorough workplace assessments to each and every individual.
