Every year over 200 people a year lose their lives at work in Britain & Ireland. In addition, around 160,000 + non fatal injuries are reported each year, and an estimated 2 million suffer from ill health caused or made worse by work.
All employers under the Health & Safety At Work Order 1978 (NI) &The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 (ROI) must carry out a Health & Safety risk assessment as health and safety law applies to all businesses, however small. It covers employees, full- or part-time, temporary or permanent, the self-employed, young people doing work experience, apprentices, charity workers, mobile workers and home-workers. If you hire temps or casuals from agencies you have health and safety responsibilities towards them too.
