What is HSE?

Firstly, health refers to protect people from ill-health at work.  Because it is responsible for more deaths each year than accidents.  For example ill-health from asbestosis in a building site or back pain from computer work.

Secondly, safety means protecting people from injury from accidents.  F0r example, falling from hight.

Finally, the environment aspect of this course looks at our obligation to protect the environment from pollution and waste.

Applicable legislation

The HSE Act 1974 requires employers to ensure the health and safety of all employees  and anyone affected by their work, so far as is reasonably practicable.  To clarify, this means balancing the level of risk against the measures needed to control the risk in terms of money, time or trouble.

The management of Health & Safety at work regulations build on the HSWA to include a duty on employers to assess risks (including slip and trip risks) and take action where necessary.
