All employers? duty of care to their employees means they have to provide competent staff a safe working environment the correct equipment and a safe system of work.
Section 16 of the Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 permits Approved Codes of Practice which explains different practises acceptable for different working environments. The Approved Codes of Practice can be used as an indication for the courts as to whether the actions of the employer were safe.
An employer can only escape liability if they can prove that they have exercised reasonable care.
Employees can be seriously injured by way of faulty equipment which they have been given or by using defective equipment which then causes an accident. These accidents then have penalties from the employer needing to replace or re-train the member of staff who was injured to possibly paying out for rehabilitation and compensation for financial losses which the employee has suffered due to the accident.
Employers may also have to undergo an investigation and face the closure of their firm if serious negligence has resulted in a near-fatal accident on their premises. These are extreme consequences which employers rarely consider but checking equipment can prevent a great deal of heartache further down the line.
