Preventing workplace injuries
In addition to achieving financial success, ensuring a safe working environment should be every employer’s top priority. As people spend most of their working week in the workplace, it’s essential that the environment is safe to work in and they they won’t become ill simply because they are going to work.
Although there is a moral requirement for employers to ensure a safe workplace for their employees, there is also a legal one. If your employer fails to ensure that the workplace is safe, they could be breaking the law and there could be serious consequences for their actions.
Even if your employer does take steps to improve the safety of the workplace, they could still be held liable if injuries do occur. Simple things like ensuring that workers have the correct equipment, that equipment is maintained and safety checked regularly and that workplace provision is a well-lit, well-ventilated area in which to work – can all help to prevent workplace injuries and illnesses from occurring.
