Employers have a duty to ensure so far as reasonably practicable the safety of employees and other persons under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974. The ‘Six Pack’ health and safety regulations are designed to promote a consistent minimum standards approach to health and safety whereby risks are assessed and wherever possible eliminated at source. There is a hierarchy of measures with collective measures and physical barriers etc taking precedence over reliance on individual training and vigilance and reliance upon suitable personal protective equipment being regarded as a last line of defence.
If your employee has failed to abide to these legal requirements, an incident is far more likely to occur, the consequences of which can have a significant impact on the victims life. If you are alone worker or work in a job that has a great deal of repetition the employer has a duty to invest in regular training , refresher training and behavioural training to do all that is reasonably practicable to ensure that safe systems of work are operated
