Health & Safety

Think about changing a light bulb – what’s your first thought? Is it whether you’ve done a risk assessment? What if something drops on a passer-by?

Employers and employees both should take care of their health and safety. Employers have a duty of care under the Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 but health and safety should be a common sense approach rather than a ‘catch all’ situation.

Depending on the work environment identify the risks and put in place reasonable measures to prevent accidents or harm to people. If it looks ‘like an accident waiting to happen’ take action to prevent it happening! Make sure that the people you work with are not at risk.
