UK legislation places most of the responsibilities for workplace safety on employers. Among other things, they are required to:
Employees are required to follow all safety instruction they are provided with, attend any training they are provided with, and report any hazards or issues they notice as soon as possible.
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 is the main piece of legislation covering occupational safety and health in Great Britain, and is enforced by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).
It requires employers to protect their employees while at work by, among other things, providing a safe working environment, appropriate staff training and adequate welfare facilities.
For more information on this act, click here to view our article on its key takeaways.
There are a large number of reasons why protecting the health and safety of employees is important. First, it is morally right to make sure that staff are able to return home safely and work without fear of injury or illness.
Also, good safety practices can reduce absences and disruption, resulting in higher productivity and reduced costs.
Finally, as previously mentioned, protecting the safety and health of employees at work is a legal requirement. Failing to do so can result in legal action, fines and imprisonment.
