Workers Safety Responsibilities
There are (2) two general duties in safety:
- Duty of care
- Duty of responsibility
While the duty of care is for employers, the duty of responsibility for employees.
Here I will talk about the duty of responsibility assigned to workers.
This duty of responsibility refers to what is expected from all workers concerning safety.
I will generally summarized the workers safety responsibilities into four (4):
- Workers have a duty to take care of their own health and safety and that of others who may be affected by their act or omissions at work.
- Workers must co-operate with employers and co-workers to help everyone meet their legal requirements.
- As a worker, if you have specific queries or concerns relating to health and safety in your workplace, talk to your employer, manager/supervisor or a health and safety representative.
- Make use of all safety equipment or safety gears provided for their safety.
All workers have a part to play in ensuring safety in the workplace.
The workers safety responsibilities are guidelines which could help make our workplaces a safe Heaven.
