Preventing accidents at work

Seeing as around 1.5 million accidents at work occur every year and 220 workers died as a result of such accidents during 2004/05 there is a clear need for both employees and their employers to take action.

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) works along side the Health and Safety Commission (HSC) to regulate health and safety in Great Britain. Read more about the Health and Safety Executive. They aim to educate employees about potential dangers in the workplace and recommend that the following risk assessment is carried out:

Step 1: Identify the hazards

Step 2: Decide who might be harmed and how

Step 3: Evaluate the risks and decide on precaution

Step 4: Record your findings and implement them

Step 5: Review your assessment and update if necessary

For more details please visit http://www.hse.gov.uk/risk/index.htm

The HSE also informs employees of their workers' rights and how accidents at work and resulting personal injuries can be avoided. They have formulated a booklet entitled workplace 'Health, Safety and Welfare' that can be found at http://www.hse.gov.uk/pubns/indg244.pdf. We have summarised the booklet below in a more concise checklist for managers:
