Subject: Controlling risk in a working environment
- Everyone who works for you needs to know how to work safely and without risks to health. As an employer, giving your workers the right knowledge and skills is not only a legal duty but also can contribute to the success of your business.
- You must provide a safe and healthy environment for all your employees and take their welfare needs into account. This applies to a very wide range of workplaces, not only factories, shops and offices but also, for example, schools, hospitals, hotels and places of entertainment.
There are many other requirements for employers to ensure there is a safe place and safe system of work to avoid and wherever possible reduce the risk of work accident compensation claims by solicitors.
If the employer fails in its legal duty of care to protect employees from injury then the employee has a right to make a work accident compensation claim.
