Steps to a safe workplace

We’ve all heard the phrase ‘innocent until proven guilty’.  health and safety law actually works in the opposite way.  Employers who incur a workplace accidents will be considered liable until they prove themselves innocent. 

‘Innocent’ in a health and safety context means having systems of work in place that are documented and don't expose staff to any unreasonable risks.

In practice this requires;

1.  Writing a health and safety policy

2.  Undertaking timely risk assessments

3.  Appropriate steps have been taken to reduce risks

4.  Documenting these steps

Appropriate include providing staff with training where hazards cannot be completely removed.
