Workplace health and safety responsibilities can vary based on the jurisdiction and the size and nature of the company. However, in general, the responsibility for ensuring workplace health and safety is a shared effort involving both employers and employees. Here are some key stakeholders and their roles:

Employers are typically responsible for providing a safe and healthy work environment for their employees.

They must conduct risk assessments, implement safety policies and procedures, and ensure that necessary safety measures are in place.

Employers may need to provide appropriate training to employees, maintain equipment and facilities, and comply with relevant health and safety regulations.

Employees are responsible for following safety guidelines and procedures, using personal protective equipment (PPE) as required, and reporting any unsafe conditions to their supervisors.

They should actively participate in safety training programs and adhere to safety protocols to contribute to a safe work environment.

Health and Safety Committees:
In many jurisdictions, larger companies are required to establish health and safety committees consisting of both management and employee representatives. These committees collaborate on safety issues and make recommendations to improve workplace safety.

Government Authorities:
Government agencies set and enforce workplace health and safety regulations. They may conduct inspections to ensure compliance and may impose penalties for violations.

Occupational health and safety agencies may provide guidelines and resources to help employers and employees maintain a safe working environment.

Safety Officers/Managers:
Some organizations designate safety officers or managers to oversee and implement safety programs. These individuals may have specific training and expertise in occupational health and safety.

It’s important for companies to be aware of and comply with the specific regulations applicable to their industry and location. In many places, failure to meet health and safety requirements can result in legal consequences, fines, or other penalties.
