It is essential for employers, the self-employed and those with specific health and safety responsibilities to be familiar with all the legal obligations affecting their workplace.  Employees should also be aware that they have legal duties in relation to health and safety.

The question should not be, ‘can I afford to train myself and my staff?’ but ‘can I afford not to?’  Neglecting to fulfil legal duties could result in fines, imprisonment and the payment of compensation should someone take out a civil case for damages.

There is more to the reduction of accidents and ill heath at work than legal compliance.
Enforcement agencies are also looking for the existence, or non-existence, of a health and safety culture within an organisation.

Training, again, is vital in contributing towards a health and safety culture where management and employees feel that they have crucial role to play in creating and maintaining sound health and safety standards.
