Employers are responsible for the health-and-safety rights of their employees. This is enforceable in the UK under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. Companies who fail to comply are at risk of legal action, fines, claims payouts, raised insurance premiums and, in the most serious cases, imprisonment.
Make sure you take health and safety seriously. Keep you employees happy, fit and able, and protect your company’s finances and reputation!
