Your employer has a duty of care

It doesn’t matter what your occupation is, or where it is within your company that you work. You may work on the factory floor; you may work in the stores; you may work in a loading bay, or you might work in an office. Wherever it is that you are required to carry out your work duties, your employer has a duty of care to ensure that you are able to do so under safe circumstances.

Carrying out risk assessments

In order to manage the health and safety of employees in whatever capacity they are employed, any employer must carry out risk assessments for each and every operation that an employer is expected to undertake. The person carrying out the risk assessment must fully understand the importance and significance of carrying out risk assessments and must be deemed capable of doing so. There is plenty of help on the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) website, and sample forms for guidance also.

The risk assessment process

The risk assessment process consists of:

  • Identifying any hazards that may cause employees harm
  • Identifying those employees who may be at risk in the workplace
  • Identifying why it is that those employees could be at risk
  • Evaluating risks and hazards
  • Mitigating risks and hazards
  • Recording each risk assessment carried out
  • Continually reviewing the risk assessment process

The reporting of incidents in the workplace

Every employer, no matter how small, must nominate someone who is responsible for managing health and safety in the workplace. It is important that an accident book should be kept in which all accidents are recorded under the RIDDOR (Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations) process.
