WORKING SAFELY

Is in the interest and concern of all staff – both the employers and employees. Although most of the legal duties fall to the employer, Health and Safety law is one of the few pieces of legislation that places duties on the employee as well.

There are three reasons for managing risk at work that bring benefit for all concerned: Moral – not causing harm to work colleagues; Legislative – the law requires it; Financial – all accidents bear a cost to both parties.

Workers have an expectation to go home at the end of the working day not having been injured by any workplace activity. Most workers feel that accidents are something that only happens to other people. The reality is that too many workers are coming to harm by not observing Health and Safety laws and not working to safe systems of work. That’s where our working safely course can help.
