Employees share responsibility for workplace safety

THE Occupational Safety and Health (OSHA) Amendment Act 2020 defines the general duties of everyone – from employers and employees to business owners and managers – in maintaining health and safety in the workplace. In short, everybody is responsible for workplace health and safety.

Generally, when an accident happens, people would usually point the finger at the employer. Although it is the duty of employers to ensure a safe and healthy workplace, employees must also bear the responsibility of looking after their own as well as their fellow workers’ well-being and safety.
