Legal Requirements
This section provides a summary of employers’ and employees’ key responsibilities for ensuring the health, safety and welfare of their employees. Further details can be obtained from publications listed in the reference section.

Employees’ health, safety and welfare at work are protected by law. This means that employers have a duty under the law to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable:

  • the health, safety and welfare at work of their employees; and
  • employees are consulted and informed about health and safety issues, ie issues are discussed with the employees or their safety representative, if there is one.

Employees have a duty to co-operate with their employer by using the safe systems of work correctly.

Do you suffer with irritated skin? You may need a face to face referral with an Occupational Health Physician!

This involves a chat with our OHP regarding your skin care and any other relevant medical information. Once your appointment is complete you will receive a full medical report including any recommendations and advice that you may need to keep you safe in the work place and to prevent any further skin conditions that may occur without the correct advice.
