Health and Safety is a big issue these days, monitored by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) who have no qualms about dealing with employers who put their staff at risk. Just some of the things employers should do are:

- Have procedures in place in case of an emergency situation and make sure all staff are aware of the
- Have a health and safety policy, make sure all staff know the details and insist on its implementation
- Keep an accident book to record all accidents in, no matter how trivial they may seem
- Report serious accidents to HSE who will want to investigate them
- Make sure that employees have proper break periods
- Ensure walkways are kept free of spillages and obstructions
- Keep all plant and equipment in good working order ensuring any safety devices are fitted and working
