Health and safety responsibilities

Providing employees with an understanding of their health and safety responsibilities

What are your health and safety responsibilities as an employer?

Under the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, employers have a duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees as well as others affected by their business (including homeworkers, part-time and temporary staff).

The Health and Safety Executive states that 28.2 million working days have been lost in recent years due to work-related illness and workplace injury. It’s therefore vital that employers understand their health and safety responsibilities and do whatever is reasonably practicable to achieve good workplace health and safety.

What are your health and safety responsibilities as an employee?

As an employee, you are responsible for your own wellbeing and that of your colleagues who may be affected by your actions. You must also co-operate with employers and co-workers to help everyone meet their legal requirements.
