Working with machinery is an incredibly dangerous industry to work in as there are so many things that can go wrong. It is an employer’s responsibility to try and eliminate as many risks as they can form the workplace. In order to do this they must first carry out a risk assessment; the purpose of this is to spot anything in the workplace that may be a potential risk to the health of the employees.
Once the detailed risk assessment has been carried out an employer must then take measure to eliminate any hazards in the workplace and train all staff about how to safely manage the risks in the workplace if they cannot be eliminated due to the vital running of the business. For example in a steelworks they have dangerously hot ovens for melting steel in; these are clearly a risk but cannot be eliminated otherwise there would not be a business. Therefore it is up to the employer to make it as safe as possible for employees to work with the risk by providing the appropriate training and the appropriate personal protective equipment.
