Working safely is in the interest and concern of all personnel-both the employers and employees.
Although most of the legal responsibilities lies with employer, Health and Safety is one of the legislation that places duties on the employee as well. Workers have an expectation to go home at the end of the day not having been injured by any activity. Engaged and empowered employees will choose to work safely for themselves and ensure others do as well. They will also feel comfortable to contribute their ideas for safety and health improvement.
Training is an essential part of an effective health and safety system. All employees must undertake the necessary skills and tools to do their job safely. With the proper training, each employee can perform independent job risk assessments.
