You should be left in no doubt that a hazard is close by.

    The things your boss should do to avoid an accident at work in Oxford

    Every business is different, so there are different rules for different professions and trades, although there are some general rules that will apply to all types of business, to reduce the risk of an accident at work in Oxford. They are:

    • Make sure the all plant and equipment is in proper working order
    • Make sure staff are trained to use the plant and equipment, and do not let anyone use it that isn’t
    • Keep walkways clear from obstructions and spillages
    • Do not allow wires to be trailing across where staff have to walk
    • Keep an accident book to record all accidents and report serious ones to HSE
    • Put procedures in place, that everyone knows, in case of an emergency situation
    • Have regular fire drills
    • Carry out risk assessments and act on their findings
    • Have a health and safety policy and ensure all employees know its contents
    • If needed, provide free of charge, protective clothing
    • Ensure you have enough space to work comfortably

    If your employer follows these rules, then it should reduce the risk of you suffering an accident at work in Oxford, and it should make the workplace a safer place to be. Bur remember, as an employee you have to comply with the rules as well. Do not go against the health and safety procedures your employer has put in place, and make sure you wear any protective clothing they have provided.
