Making the workplace a safer environment

All workers are entitled to work in environments where risks to their health and safety are properly controlled. Under health and safety law, the primary responsbility for this is down to employers. Employees must consider the risks run and working conditions, while guaranteeing optimal comfort and maximum safety.

The introduction of the Health, Safety and Welfare Regulations 1992 means employers have a general duty, under section 2, to ensure, so far as is reasonably practical, the heath, safety and welfare of all members of their employees at work.  People in control of non-domestic premises have a duty, under section 4 of the act, towards people who are not their  employees but use the premises. The regulations expand on these duties and are intended to protect the health and safety of everyone in the workplace and ensure that adequate welfare facilities are provided for people at work.

These regulations aim to ensure that workplaces meet the health, safety and welfare needs of all members of a workforce, including people with disabilities.

Several of the regulations require facilities should be suitable for anyone. This includes people with disabilities. Where necessary, parts of the workplace, including in particular doors, passageways, stairs, showers, washbasins, lavatories and workstations, should be made accessible and safe.
