Under the 1974 Health and Safety Act every employer has a duty of care to look after staff in their workplace whether that is a manufacturing site or office environment. The legislation covers both employees’ physical safety and mental health. This means that you are legally obliged to do everything reasonably practicable to care for your staff’s mental and physical wellbeing. For employers with 5 or more employees, policies and risk assessments should be documented to show how you have achieved and maintained this level of care.
