Health & Safety Law – Health and safety legislation places a number of duties on organisations, managers and employees alike. Failure to carry out these duties can result in fines and, in extreme cases, imprisonment.

Employers & Employees Duties – Making your workplace safe and without risks to health, so far is as reasonably practicable. The basic principle is that every employee must take reasonable care for the safety of themselves and of others who may be affected by their acts or omissions.

Risks & Hazards – A Hazard is something in the workplace that has the potential to cause harm, damage or injury. Risk is the likelihood or severity of this happening.

Safety Signs – One area of importance with regards safety is the use of safety signs. There are several types of safety signs that you will encounter.

The Accident Investigation – ‘An accident at work is an unplanned happening or event, with a specific cause or causes, which arises out of or in connection with work and leads to injury’
