Who is Responsible in your Company?

The employer is responsible to promote the mental and physical well-being of their employees as well as enabling their employees to carry out their work safely.  Working conditions, health and safety in the workplace are often the responsibility of the employer. The employer shall ensure that employees have a good and safe working environment.

Risk Assessment in the Workplace

An assessment starts with the mapping of all relevant activities. Risk factors are identified and the likelihood of an employee having an accident or compromising his health is estimated. The risk assessment then becomes the foundation for mitigation actions to lower these risks in a cost efficient manner.

The risk assessment is the foundation for a health and safety plan and preventive measures. Increased safety measures reduce the probability of accidents and associated costs. These costs can be, damage to property or the environment, company image, insurance costs, compensations and even business closure.

Mannvit is experienced in consulting and assisting companies with risk assessments and creating action plans regarding safety and occupational health in the workplace.

When introducing new health, safety and environmental priorities, it is important to educate and inform employees about why this is important and also to get employees on board and involved in developing the system.
