Understand Your Legal Responsibilities
The principal act governing Health & Safety in the workplace is The Health & Safety at Work Etc. Act 1974. This act provides for a ‘safe place of work’ governing all employers, employees, contract workers, visitors and contractors. Breaches of Health & Safety legislation and regulations can be a criminal offence, which, upon summary conviction may lead to substantial fines and under certain circumstances imprisonment for any proven offence. Failures of health & safety in the workplace or ‘negligent acts’ which lead to harm may also be a civil offence where injured parties could claim for financial compensation.
