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):

  1. 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.
  2. Workers must co-operate with employers and co-workers to help everyone meet their legal requirements.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
