The Health and Safety at Work etc. Act 1974 imposes a statutory duty on employers to ensure in so far as reasonably practicable the health and safety of all their employees whilst at work. This duty extends to others who may be affected by that work and to ensure that all practicable steps are taken to safeguard their health, safety and welfare.
Employees also have a statutory duty to take care of themselves and others who may be affected by their acts or omissions therefore employees at all levels are required to give the policy their support and are encouraged to make positive contribution to the improvement of health and safety in The Crafthub’s operation, by constructive suggestions which will be given careful consideration by the management team.
To enable these duties to be carried out, it is our intent to ensure that responsibilities for health and safety matters are effectively assigned, accepted and fulfilled at all levels within our organisation.
