The Health and safety at work Act 1974 puts a duty of care upon both employer and employee to ensure the safety of all persons using the work premises. This includes the self-employed.
The Health & Safety at Work Act (1974) places such an obligation in the following circumstances:
✔ Where appliances are used by employees.
✔ Where the public may use appliances in establishments such as hospitals, schools, hotels, shops etc.
✔ Where appliances are supplied or hired.
