Employers have a duty to protect the health, safety and welfare of their employees and also anyone else who could other people who might be affected by their business. Employers are obliged to do whatever is reasonably practicable to ensure this.
Employers must asses risks in the work place and take steps to mitigate them, this includes:
- making employees and others aware of potential risks
- Providing adequate training
- Providing safety equipment
- Making sure the working environment is kept safe and free of hazards
If your employer fails to meet these duties and you are injured in a workplace accident, you could be due compensation.
