What is Health and Safety?

Health and safety encompasses policies, procedures, and practices aimed at protecting the health, safety, and well-being of employees in the workplace. It involves identifying, assessing, and mitigating risks and hazards that could cause harm or injury to workers, visitors, or the public.

Key aspects of health and safety in the workplace include:

  1. Risk Assessment: Identifying potential hazards and risks in the workplace, such as physical hazards (e.g., machinery, equipment), chemical hazards (e.g., hazardous substances), biological hazards (e.g., pathogens), ergonomic hazards (e.g., repetitive tasks), and psychosocial hazards (e.g., workplace stress, harassment).

  2. Preventive Measures: Implementing measures to eliminate or control hazards and minimize the risk of accidents, injuries, or illnesses. This may include engineering controls (e.g., machine guards, ventilation systems), administrative controls (e.g., safe work procedures, training), and personal protective equipment (PPE).

  3. Training and Education: Providing employees with training, information, and resources to ensure they understand the potential hazards in their workplace and know how to work safely. This includes training on emergency procedures, hazard recognition, safe work practices, and the proper use of equipment and PPE.

  4. Emergency Preparedness: Developing and implementing emergency response plans and procedures to address potential emergencies, such as fires, chemical spills, medical emergencies, or natural disasters. This may include evacuation plans, first aid training, and communication protocols.

  5. Health Promotion: Promoting employee health and well-being through initiatives such as wellness programs, ergonomic assessments, mental health support, and access to health resources and services.

  6. Compliance and Regulation: Ensuring compliance with relevant health and safety legislation, regulations, and standards applicable to the workplace. This may include conducting regular inspections, audits, and risk assessments to identify areas for improvement and ensure legal compliance.

  7. Worker Participation: Encouraging employee involvement and participation in health and safety initiatives, including consultation with workers on health and safety matters, representation on health and safety committees, and reporting of hazards, incidents, or near misses.

  8. Continuous Improvement: Establishing mechanisms for monitoring, evaluating, and continuously improving health and safety performance in the workplace. This may involve reviewing incident reports, conducting safety audits, and implementing corrective actions to address identified issues.

Effective health and safety management is essential for creating a safe and healthy work environment, reducing the risk of workplace accidents and injuries, and promoting employee well-being and productivity. It requires collaboration and commitment from employers, employees, and other stakeholders to create a culture of safety and ensure that health and safety considerations are integrated into all aspects of the organization's operations.

Which legal requirements and best practices should employers keep in mind?

Health and safety at work encompasses a wide range of duties and responsibilities aimed at maintaining a safe working environment for employees. There are many relevant pieces of legislation and case law.

All employers have a duty of care which is an obligation to protect their employees. A term is implied into all employment contracts requiring employers to take care of their employees health and safety. For example, employers must:

  • Provide a safe place of work.

  • Provide a safe system of work.

  • Provide adequate plant and equipment.

  • Recruit competent and safety conscious staff.

If an employer fails to take reasonable care in any of these areas, an employee may be able to make a number of claims, including resigning and claiming constructive unfair dismissal and personal injury.

Employees, too, have responsibilities and should work with their employer to develop a safe place of work.
