Employees are also responsible for their own health and safety in the workplace. You do have the right to refuse to do a job if you believe it is not safe or if you have not been provided with the correct equipment to do the job. Your employer cannot dismiss you or threaten to dismiss you if you refuse to work for genuine health and safety concerns for yourself or your colleagues. If you have any concerns about health and safety at work you should always talk to your employer first; they may simply be unaware of any problems. If your employer does not listen to your concerns and act upon them as a final resort you may have to report them to the local authority’s environmental health department.
In organisations where workers regularly use trolleys and forklift trucks extra safety precautions should be taken to ensure that the vehicles do not collide either with each other or with pedestrians. In our experience simple procedures generally work extremely well; for example this accident could have been prevented by having lanes which could work on a one-way system. This would guarantee that at any one point in time two fork lift trucks going in opposite directions would not be able to meet and cause an accident.
