LAB SAFETY LEGAL DUTIES

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 requires employers to ensure the health and safety of everyone affected by their work.  All reasonably practicable efforts must be taken.  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 Laboratory safety risks) and take action where necessary.  For example, providing training to staff so they are awareness hazards.

In addition to the general requirement of COSHH, laboratories with biological agents have additional regulations.
