Description:
The fundamental aim of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 and the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (General Application) Regulations 2007 is the prevention of accidents and ill health at work. The legislation which applies to all employers, employees and the self-employed sets out the general ‘duties of care’ for each of these parties. Accordingly the Health Services Executive (HSE) is required to demonstrate compliance with the Act and the associated Regulations. The Corporate Safety Statement describes the HSE’s safety management programme and identifies the importance of staff co-operation to ensure its successful implementation. The Corporate Safety Statement must be made available and communicated to all staff.
