Safety in the Workplace

All workers are entitled to work in environments where risks to their health and safety are properly controlled and they can feel secure in the knowledge that precautions have been taken to prevent these risks. Under health and safety law, the primary responsibility for this is down to employers. Employers have a duty to consult with their employees, or their representatives, on health and safety matters.

What you must do:

1) Follow the training you have received when using any work items your employer has given you.

2) Take reasonable care of your own and other people’s health and safety.

3) Co-operate with your employer on health and safety.

4) Tell someone (your employer, supervisor, or health and safety representative) if you think the work or inadequate precautions are putting anyone’s health and safety at serious risk.
