The Importance Of Health And Safety In The Workplace

Employers must make sure that their workplace’s health and safety meet the legal requirements.

Workplace safety refers to the working environment of a business and covers all the individual factors that impact employees’ health, wellbeing, and safety.

This may include:

  • Unsafe working processes or conditions
  • Environmental hazards
  • On-site violence
  • Drug and alcohol abuse
  • The appropriate use of tools
  • Making crisis exits easily accessible
  • The use of mechanical assistance
  • Reducing job-related stress

Among the rules, employees should be warned about potential hazards, have training to avoid risks, and given a means to file a confidential complaint.
