Health and safety at work act and other regulations relating to safety at work

 

The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974, Section 2 (2)(d)

The law requires that every employer shall, so far as is reasonably practicable, maintain every workplace, including access to and egress from it, so that it is safe and without risk
to health.

 

The Health and Safety at Work etc Act 1974 , also referred to as HASAW or HSW, is the primary piece of legislation covering occupational health and safety in the United Kingdom. The Health and Safety Executive is responsible for enforcing the Act and a number of other Acts and Statutory Instruments relevant to the working environment.

 

It shall be the duty of every employer to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare at work of all his employees. Slip ad fall accidents account for one third of all serious accidents at work. Employers should therefore ensure all floors are safe and should monitor the slip resistance of floors and monitor changes to slip risk.


The Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 Regulation 12(2)(a)

The law requires that floors in a workplace must not be slippery, holed, sloped, or uneven, so as to expose any person to a risk to their safety.

 

Safety Procedures

Your safety procedures should include regular monitoring of floors and you should test all new floors and changes to floors. Slip risk and monitoring floor slip resistance should be a part of your risk assessment procedures.
