I have heard about a 'duty of care' on my employer. What is it?
In addition, the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 (HASAWA) requires employers and employees to take reasonable care for the health and safety of everyone at work, including visitors and other non-employees who use the premises.
A breach of this duty of care, by either the employer or the employee, could result in a civil case, or a criminal prosecution by a Health and Safety Executive (HSE) inspector through the appropriate enforcement procedure.
