Your Duty

All employers have a legal duty to provide their employees with a safe working environment. Failure to adhere to health and safety legislation can lead to significant fines or even imprisonment. In Health and Safety Management there are two main pieces of legislation that are likely to affect you and your business:

  1. The ‘Health and Safety at Work Act 1974’, which stipulates that “it is the duty of every employer to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work of all his employees”.
  2. The ‘Management of Health and Safety at Work Regulations 1999’ which state that every employer shall make a suitable and sufficient assessment 
  3. The risks to the health and safety of his employees to which they are exposed whilst they are at work
  4. The risks to the health and safety of persons not in his employment arising out of or in connection with the conduct by him of his undertaking
