Health and Safety - Employers Responsibility
Under the Health and Safety Act, employers are legally responsible for ensuring, so far as it is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of their employees. All employees should take all practicable steps to ensure their own safety at work and are expected to exercise a general duty of care, set out in the Health & Safety in Employment Act, 1992.
