Under the employers liability act of 1969 most employers are required by law to insure against liability for injury or disease to their employees as a result of doing their job.
Your employer should have a valid and up to date certificate of employer’s liability insurance. On this certificate the minimum lever of cover and the companies covered by the policy should be stated clearly. Just because your employer has a certificate of employer’s liability insurance does not mean that they have the right to ignore health and safety guidelines or make employees use faulty of defective equipment; the safety of all employees should always be first and foremost. Some employees may have received a copy of the certificate electronically; sine 2008 this method of displaying the certificate has been acceptable.
