Health and Safety at Work

The lives and health of a company’s employees must be protected against all potential risks arising from or through work. The employer is responsible for constantly ensuring the health and safety of his workforce. He has to set up and manage all workplaces, machines, tools and plants accordingly. In short, he has to provide and maintain at all times a humane and safe working environment.

 

All technical equipment has to comply with safety standards so that systematic as well as sporadic incidents of malfunction are largely prevented. Over and above this, the adoption of organizational measures helps to eliminate hazards and risks.

 

The protection of health and safety at work and the corresponding measures are regulated by many specific standards and laws.
