Health and safety in the workplace
Protect the wellbeing of your employees, visitors and customers
The importance of health and safety in the workplace is a duty and moral responsibility of the company to look after the employee's protection.
Health and safety in the workplace is important as it protects the wellbeing of employees, visitors and customers.
Health and safety in the workplace is becoming more and more crucial since 200 people are killed each year in accidents at work, and over a million are injured. Over two million suffer illness caused by or made worse by their work.
Not only is health and safety for the companies employees a duty and a way to increase employee safety, but it also helping to improve productivity and quality of the products.
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 applies to all employers, self-employed, most government offices and in some circumstances, the general public.
The act makes the employer responsible for the protection of their employees and members of the public affected by the work. The employees have health and safety responsibilities, and it is the employer's duty to notify them of these responsibilities.
The workplace and built environment is a major influence on the health, welfare, morale and productivity of employers, contracts and visitors alike.
