The Health and safety at work 1974 is by no means an exhaustive act other additional acts have also been introduced as supplements to enhance it such as the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER 98). These additions are very much more niche to certain sectors of employment law which employers of office workers will rarely if ever need to deal with. Employers who have manual workers or who have workers who need to use machinery which is inherently dangerous can usually find more exhaustive requirements by asking a law firm or by doing a check for their legal obligations online. Another set of workers who require separate working requirements includes agricultural workers and workers who are around things such as coal dust and loud noises.
Every UK employer has a duty of care. This is critical to the health safety and general welfare of all employees. Not all employers are aware of the implications of the duty of care. But it doesn?t matter how small a business happens to be. Where there’s any member of staff there is a duty of care responsibility.
An employer should have a person who deals with health and safety matters. This person must be legally competent. In other words that person should have the ability to understand the concerns around health and safety.
