    Health and safety laws

    There are a lot of laws surrounding health and safety within the workplace, which all employers have a legal obligation to follow. It is important to point out that all employees also have a legal responsibility under these laws as a way of protecting themselves and work colleagues.

    An injury lawyer will be aware of the legislation that surrounds the workplace in which you have been injured. The main purpose of the health and safety law is to protect people within their place of work. Under the legislation, the employer has a legal responsibility to:

    • Provide a safe system of work;
    • Provide a safe place to work;
    • Provide safe work equipment that is correctly maintained; and
    • Provide training and instruction that is renewed on a regular basis.

    As well as the basic laws that are in place, over the years there have been various regulations and statues put in place that surround the health and safety regimes within the workplace. The regulations provide duties and standards to do with almost every type of workplace.
