Health and Safety Law and the Individual

Everyone has a responsibility to protect health and safety in the workplace. This module covers the main workplace health and safety legislation, the responsibilities of employers and employees and the role of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and local authorities in enforcing health and safety laws.

Employer Responsibilities

Employers have a duty of care to protect their workers from harm. This module covers common workplace hazards that cause preventable accidents, along with the importance of risk assessments to control for them. It also explores common health and safety signs and their meanings.

Employee Responsibilities

Ultimately, employers are responsible for health and safety in a workplace – but employees have an important role to play in keeping themselves and those around them safe. They must follow all health and safety guidance and speak up if they notice any hazards that have not been addressed.

The Importance of Health and Safety Training

Good employee training in health and safety is vital. It contributes to a safe, healthy workplace culture and ensures employers are less likely to be fined or prosecuted for breaches of health and safety law.

Employees can’t be expected to follow rules they haven’t been told about, so good quality training is a must in all workplaces. When organisations have good health and safety practices, everyone wins.


If you have any questions that are not covered here, please get in touch.

Employers manage health and safety risks through robust risk assessments and complying with all relevant health and safety legislation. They must take every step required to identify all potential hazards and put in place the appropriate control measures to make sure their staff and the public are kept safe.

Health and safety legislation is important in the workplace because it protects employees, employers, the public and the environment. Following it correctly is perhaps the most important duty employers have. The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 is the main piece of UK health and safety legislation.

A workplace safety culture is about taking health and safety concerns seriously and putting the health and safety of staff, visitors and the public as a number one priority. Successful safety cultures involve the input of all employees and make it safe for people to raise potential issues when they see them.
