The Health, Safety and Welfare of Employees in the Workplace is governed by Irish legislation. The principal act governing Employer duties regarding Health and Safety in the Workplace is the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, 2005. There are also a number of European Union Directives which set out detailed requirements with regards to safety and health in the workplace.

In order for Organisations to manage health and safety in their workplace effectively they must implement adequate preventative and protective measures for their workplace, along with training Management and Employees in certain processes with regards to ensuring both their own safety, and the safety of others. At Adare we have set out information with regards to the key areas Organisations should be aware of, such as:

  • Bullying in the Workplace
  • Fire
  • First Aid
  • Manual Handling
  • Carrying out Risk Assessments

We have laid out detailed information in relation to the above topics, and many more, to guide Organisations in best practice health and safety in their workplace. We have provided definitions, guides to the Act, and examples of numerous topics which Organisations may come up against in their workplace. This information is intended to assist Organisations in carrying out their duties effectively and ensuring that their obligations under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, 2005 and European Union directives are met.
