Employers have responsibilities for the health and safety of their employees.
They are also responsible for any visitors to their premises such as customers,
suppliers and the general public.
Employers have a ‘duty of care’ to ensure, as far as possible, employees health, safety and welfare while they
are at work. They should start with a risk assessment to spot possible health
and safety hazards. They have to appoint a 'competent person' with health and
safety responsibilities (usually one of the owners in smaller firms, or a
member of staff trained in health and safety). All employers must display or
provide health and safety posters or leaflets approved by the Health and Safety
Executive and HSENI).
