  11. 11. HEALTH SAFETY AND WELFARE LAWS ARE NEEDED TO PROTECT EMPLOYERS, EMPLOYEES, PUBLIC AND THE ENVIRONMENT FROM EMPLOYERS •UNSCRUPULOUS STUPID PEOPLE •
  12. 12. Health & Safety at Work Act This act of parliament makes it a criminal  offence not to comply with the duties it imposes. Failure to comply could lead to  prosecution in the courts with heavy fines and/or imprisonment. Ignorance is no excuse. 
  13. 13. Legal Standards ―Reasonably Practicable‖ or ―SFARP‖ Implies a weighing up of the risk against the cost  (in terms of time, money or trouble) in preventing or controlling a risk NOT AN EXCUSE TO DO NOTHING  ― BEST PRACTICAL MEANS‖  SOME LAWS ARE ABSOLUTE i.e. you must do it (unless prevented by ‗State of Technological advances‘)
  14. 14. Section 2. GOAL SETTING Section 2(1) - employers’ general duty Duty to ensure ‗so far as is reasonably  practicable‘, the health, safety and welfare at work of employees and any others who may be affected by the undertaking….

  20. 20. Risk Assessments Management Duty Risk assessments are the most important and effective recent safety legislation. Before undertaking any task, Identify the hazards and 1. Assess the risks. 2. Implement the measures required to remove or 3. minimise the risk before starting work. significant findings must be recorded 4. Revise and review 5.
  21. 21. The important thing is to identify the risk of  injury and point the way to practical improvements LEAVING IT TO SOMEONE ELSE IS  NEGLIGENCE
  22. 22. Employees have duties too.

  31. 31. Incident and accident reporting Report all accidents, incidents and unsafe practices, even if no injury was caused. This will allow action to be taken to prevent it happening to someone else and may even save a life.
  32. 32. REASONABLY PRACTICABLE???? A WORKER THOUGHT SO

  40. 40. The highest radiation doses were received by  emergency workers and on-site personnel. In time more than 600 000 people were registered as emergency and recovery workers, over 5 million people received relatively low whole-body doses of radiation....... The mitigation measures taken by the authorities, including evacuation of people from the most contaminated areas, substantially reduced radiation exposures and the radiation-related health impacts of the accident.
  41. 41. It is impossible to assess reliably or with any precision, numbers of fatal cancers caused by radiation exposure due to the Chernobyl ‘accident’— or indeed the impact of the stress and anxiety induced by the ‘accident’ and the response to it. A Human tragedy................. WHO
  42. 42. REASONABLY PRACTICABLE? THE WORKERS SEEM TO THINK SO
  43. 43. IF YOU THOUGHT SO.... I've just wasted my time........... THE END
