Protecting Your Work Force

What is Health and Safety at Work?

Health and safety at work is a general term taken from UK health and safety legislation. Employers are legally responsible for safeguarding their employees whilst they are at work; this mean protecting them from hazards in the workplace by risk assessing their work activities. By conducting a risk assessment this gives employers the opportunity to balance protective measures against the level of risk. In the world of regulations this is called doing things ‘so far as is reasonably practicable’. Health and safety at work could cover a multitude of topics such as occupational health, occupational health assessments, hazards in the workplace, health and safety training, competent health and safety advice… the list goes on and on. As with all health and safety at work, it starts with a risk assessment.
