Although there are strict safety regulations in place which employers should follow to the letter, accidents in the workplace still occur, and sometimes these are fatal. The Health and Safety at Work Act (1974) requires employers to make provisions which ensure the health and safety at work of all their employees. Employees also have responsibilities for their own and their colleagues’ safety. They should not put themselves at risk of any danger and should also not endanger others in the workplace. If employees are given safety equipment and protective clothing, they should use it.
An employer should consult their employees regarding the risks they perceive in their work. The people involved in doing a job will have a good idea of what the risks are and should have an opportunity to inform their employer of what they are. There is a check list issued by the Health and Safety Executive which should be checked.
The HSE have issued many publications which can help employers understand how to ensure their premises are as safe as possible. Of course, there is never a guarantee that there won’t be an accident, because people are not infallible. However, employers have a responsibility to do their utmost to ensure that their employees are working in a safe and healthy environment.
