Employees are entitled to be able to work without fear for their health. Employers should provide training for the operation of equipment and to also ensure that safety equipment is always available. If there is danger involved in the job role there must be procedures in place so that the employee can perform their job safely. If the employer has failed to provide a safe working environment then there may be case for a claim.
Responsibilities of the Employee
