Introduction

P1 Unit 36 Tyrrel Davis In this task I have been asked to give several different relevant legislations for one manufacturing company and one service provider. Wrigley's chewing gum (manufacturing company) Workplace (Health, Safety and Welfare) Regulations 1992 These regulations are concerned with the working environment. They place a duty on employers to make sure that the workplace is safe and suitable for the tasks being carried out there, and that it does not present risks to employees and others. The regulations cover all aspects of the working environment, including: * Cleanliness and waste materials Disposal of hazardous materials is a public responsibility to prevent damage to man and animals. Often, the waste can be put to beneficial use by suitably qualified organisations to be recycled. * Condition of floors and traffic routes Every floor and traffic route must be kept free from obstruction and any article or substance which may cause a person to slip, trip and fall. * Facilities for changing clothing Suitable and sufficient facilities must be provided for people in the workplace to change into clothing required to protect their health or special clothing for the purpose of the work involved. ...read more.

These are known as 'Appointed Persons. Regulation 4 requires employers to inform their employees of the arrangements made for first-aid, 'including the location of equipment, facilities and personnel. There are no set limits for numbers, this must be decided after considering nature of work and levels of risk involved and the size and location of workplace and distance from medical facilities and hours of work Wrigley's suggests that the number should never be less than 1 trained first aider for every 50 employees. Where shift work or long hours are worked, adequate cover must be provided throughout the working period. To be classed as a trained first aider, they must have undertaken a course approved by the HSE, and any necessary refresher training. Sky (Service provider) The Electricity at Work Regulations 1989 These regulations apply to all aspects of the use of electricity within the Sky workplace from electrical supplies to the use of electrical equipment. They place a duty on employers, employees and the self-employed to: * Have the electrical systems constructed in a way that prevents danger * Maintain their electrical systems as necessary to prevent danger * Have work on, use of, or closure of, electrical systems carried out in a way that prevents danger. ...read more.

Conclusion

* Ventilation Generally there is no specified level of ventilation for workplaces, but provision must be made within all workplaces to ensure effective and suitable ventilation is maintained by a sufficient quantity of fresh or purified air incorporating filtration or dust extraction if necessary. Health and safety information for employee's regulations 1989 Sky could provide their employees with whatever information is necessary to ensure their health and safety at work, providing it's reasonably practicable to do so. Display a copy of the poster 'Health and Safety Law of what you need to know' or provide employees with a copy of the leaflet. They should also ensure people know their health and safety responsibilities, e.g. if you want a manager to fulfil your legal duty to keep an accident book and report certain incidents. Sky can allow any trade union safety representatives to use and take copies of documents that they have to keep under health and safety law. Sky would also put up appropriate safety signs to warn people of specific hazards. One good way of providing staff with health and safety information is to include it in a new employee's induction pack. ...read more.
