An Overview of Managers’ Responsibilities under Safety Legislation

Did you know that 80% of workplace accidents are due to management failure? (H.S.A)

Why do we need to investigate accidents?

Following a serious incident, the Health and Safety Authority, Gardai or the D.P.P. will want to know:

  • Do you manage and conduct work activities?
  • Can you prove you are compliant with sections 8, 80 & 81 of the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work Act, 2005?
  • Can you prove that you carried out your duties as outlined in your Safety Statement?
  • Do you have relevant up to date risk assessments and policies and procedures?
  • Can you prove that you are proactively managing safety, health and welfare at work?
  • Are all employees under your control competent?

Our briefing will assist you to answer “yes” to all of the above.
