Blueprint For A Safer Workplace
Maintaining a safe working environment is of utmost importance for any employer; this not only applies to the workforce, but also the surrounding public and anybody else who may be affected. The need for attention and consideration could not be more of a priority than within the already safety-conscious construction industry.
Employers have a responsibility to care for the safety of their employees and can face personal liability for preventable occupational accidents under the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act (2007). As a result, companies should have a stringent health and safety policy in place to minimise risks of incidents occurring.
