7 Introduction to Health and Safety at Work Many of the health and safety management requirements contained in health and safety law place an absolute duty on the employer. The need for written safety policies and risk assessments when employee numbers rise above a basic threshold are examples of this. 2 Practicable This level of duty is more often used than the absolute duty as far as the provision of safeguards is concerned and, in many ways, has the same effect. A duty that ‘the employer ensure, so far as is practicable, that any control measure is maintained in an efficient state’ means that if the duty is technically possible or feasible then it must be done irrespective of any difficulty, inconvenience or cost.

Any negligence claim must be made within a set time period. 2 Duties of care Several judgments have established that employers owe a duty of care to each of their employees. This duty cannot be assigned to others, even if a consultant is employed to advise on health and safety matters or if the employees are sub-contracted to work with another employer. These duties may be sub-divided into four groups. Employers must: ➤ provide a safe place of work, including access and egress ➤ ➤ ➤ ➤ provide safe plant and equipment provide a safe system of work provide safe and competent fellow employees provide adequate levels of supervision, information, instruction and training.

This duty requires judgment on the part of the employer (or his adviser) and clearly needs a risk assessment to be undertaken with conclusions noted. Continual monitoring is also required to ensure that risks do not increase. There are numerous examples of this level of duty, including the Manual Handling Operations Regulations and The Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations. If organizations follow ‘good practice’, defined by the HSE as ‘those standards which satisfy the law’, then they are likely to satisfy the ‘reasonably practicable’ test.
