Guide to safety testing legislation
Legislation can be a minefield for any business and understanding the requirements and implications can be daunting, especially in regards to carrying out safety testing in your building. Here's what you need to know.
The Duty Holder
In any organisation, safety will be in the hands of the Duty Holder who is required to “comply with the regulations in so far as it relates to matters within his control”. The Duty Holder could be the owner, director or the facilities manager.
As a Duty Holder, they will be deemed to have the resources and the authority necessary to provide a safety management system, and can therefore be held legally accountable following an offence. For this reason, it’s essential for Duty Holders to discharge their responsibilities effectively amongst their fellow employees.
As every employee will have a role to play in safety, however, and they should all be made aware of safe working practices to ensure that your business is fully compliant.
