The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 is based on the principle that those who create risks to employees or others in the course of carrying out work activities are responsible for those risks.
The act places specific responsibilities on employers, the self employed , employees, designers, manufacturers, importers and suppliers.
The act and associated legislation also place duties in certain circumstances on others including landlords, licensees and those in control of work activities, equipment or premises.
Under the main provisions of the act, employers have legal responsibilities in respect of the health and safety of their employees and other people who may be affected by their undertaking and exposed to risks as a result
Employees are required to take reasonable care for the health and safety of others.
Companies are obliged by law to set out their health and safety policies and are increasingly encouraged to define and monitor their management systems.
