Introduction

The first 2 legislative factors that I'm going to compare are RIDDOR and Health and safety at work act 1974. Both of the factors have advantages of the act. RIDDOR's advantages are that it applies to all the work activities if there is an accident connected with work and your employer. It also covers 3 reporting work related deaths, injuries and dangerous occurrences and requires 3 key elements, before death and injuries must be reported. The Health and safety act does have more advantages of its use which I'm going to talk about now. Making Sure the working environment and equipment are up to the necessary standard. Ensuring the safe use, handling and storage of equipment and substances. If you stick to this act fewer accidents mean better health for the employee. Fewer accidents mean more regular earnings as you are not off ill as much. ...read more.

Differences of these two acts are; RIDDOR is about report injuries, diseases and dangerous occurrences. In the RIDDOR act you have to report all of the accidents you have in the workplace including going to hospital or even death. The Health & Safety act is just there to make sure that employers and employees and even customers and members of the public are kept safe when in that place of work etc. The similarities of these two acts are; That all work places have to stick to them to make sure the correct policy is used and that they are reported in the correct way. They were both brought in due to all the accidents happening at work when the acts weren't in place. The next two I am going to compare are the Adventure Activities Licensing Authority and Fire and Safety of Places of Sport Act 1987. ...read more.

Conclusion

The disadvantages of the fire safety act is that some stadiums won't have enough fire escapes for example if there are 100,000 people to get out they will all run for the same exit which will then cause chaos as they could even get injured. The differences between the two acts are; That the fire safety act is more about fire in places of sports like stadiums and arenas. This would be in place for when there is a fire so people know what to do and how to do it. Also when you do a school trip you would like to know if there is a fire safety in measure in case of a fire you can get out safely and quickly. The Adventure Activities Licensing is responsible for inspecting activity centres and other outdoor and adventurous activity providers. This will then assure you they are safe to go to and you can trust them. ?? ?? ?? ?? Assessing Risk in sport P1/M1 Daniel Gibson Mrs Shorting ...read more.
