We all know that spillages should be cleared up immediately to avoid accidents like Mr I’s however not all employers are aware of the legal implications if an employee is hurt due to any negligence of health and safety procedures at work.
A duty of care is a legal term which relates to a company or organisation doing something which could be reasonably expected to cause another person harm. This could be either intentionally or through neglect. This harm could be either a physical mental or financial injury.
Harm can be caused by either an action or sometimes inaction by the employer. Some actions which could be considered harmful to employers could include an employer removing a safety guard for cutting equipment thus increasing the likelihood for an accident to occur. An inaction causing harm could be something as simple as an employer not insisting that warning signs are in place when liquids are spilt on the floor.
