HEALTH AND SAFETY LEGISLATION
If you are an employer you have a responsibility for the health and safety of everyone on your business premises. It is vital that you are aware of how Health and Safety legislation affects you in your country. It is also vital that employees take a collective responsibility for health and safety and ensure that management are aware of any issues they see.
Around the globe you are required by specific laws to have a Health and Safety policy and this must be in writing if you have more than a certain number of employees.
In many countries you are also required by law to record injuries, diseases or accidents in an designated book on your premises and in some cases report them to the appropriate authority.
If you work under UK Law, see the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) website
for more information and guidance. If you are elsewhere, you need to investigate the appropriate authorities and local laws for this kind of information.
