Section 8 Duties of employers:

One of the most important sections of the Act and successful implementation of it will ensure that the company has dealt with and addressed most of its requirements. The responsibility of employers to provide a safe working environment that is without risk to the health and safety of its employees is very clear. This section also encourages employers to evaluate working areas and carry out risk assessments and regular Health and Safety inspections. The employer must evaluate all work, activities and systems of work that could present potential risks for and to the company’s employees. This section also directs employers to provide and establish precautionary measures and systems to prevent workplace injuries. This section also mentions “supervision”.
