Managing Health & Safety

Bill Rogerson Safety Services Ltd

Whatever your type of business, office, shop, care home, factory, hotel, café, restaurant etc, the employer has two main general duties under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

  • Ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety, and welfare at work of his employees
  • Conduct his undertaking in such a way as to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, that persons not in his employment who may be affected are not exposed to risks to their health or safety.

The employer’s duty towards his employees applies wherever they work, not just at his workplace. The health and safety management must cover employees who work in public places, at customers’ or suppliers’ sites, in people’s homes, or anywhere else.

The employer’s duty towards non-employees applies if their health or safety may be affected by how he conducts his business. The employer’s health and safety management must cover contractors, sub-contractors, customers, suppliers, and members of the public who may visit his workplace.

It must also cover neighbours and people passing by his workplace or anywhere else that his employees may be working. The health and safety management must cover users of any services he provides and people who may be at risk from any products he designs or makes.

Managing health and safety is an integral part of managing your business. You need to do a risk assessment to find out about the risks in your workplace, put sensible measures in place to control them, and make sure they stay controlled.

Bill Rogerson Safety Services Ltd can assist you in compliance across the different areas of risk management and assist you to mitigate the risks to you, your staff and other persons.
