9.3 Duty of Care

The HASAWA places a Duty of Care on


Employers to provide a safe workplace and systems of work


Employees to adhere to the rules put in place by the Act and their employers and ensure their own Health and Safety


To act responsibly and make sure that acts or omissions do not affect those connected with work


In simple terms, by law you have to look after yourself, those that work for you or with you and anyone around you who could be affected.
