Health and safety in the workplace
Being safe at work is important. It is a responsibility shared by both the employer and the employee.
For employers, one of the fundamental principles of workplace health and safety is risk assessment which identifies all the hazards and potential for harm whilst working. For more details on relevant legislation and specific types of risk assessment.
Employers must provide information and training on risk at work and on safe working practices. Employees must comply with safety requirements at work and take all reasonable precautions to keep safe..
Fire safety is the set of practices intended to reduce the destruction caused by fire. Fire safety measures include those that are intended to prevent ignition of an uncontrolled fire, and those that are used to limit the development and effects of a fire after it starts.
Fire safety measures include those that are planned during the construction of a building or implemented in structures that are already standing, and those that are taught to occupants of the building. .
