Risk assessments and health and safety policies
Risk assessments and health and safety policies need not be as awful as they sound. They don’t need to be expensive reams of paper that no one understands. The employer needs to walk around the workplace looking for anything that might cause an accident. Discussing the matter with the employees is a good idea because they may have spotted something the employer has missed.
When all the risky areas have been identified, action should be taken to reduce those risks and the possibility of an accident.
Most employers legally have to have employers liability insurance with a minimum cover of £5,000,000. The insurance company will supply a certificate of insurance each year on renewal, which your employer has to keep for 40 years. This should really be on display for the entire workforce to see, but if its not and you ask to see it, the employer has to show it to you.
