He understands at first hand the employers’ duty with respect to health and safety management to their employees. The primary duty of the employer under the SHW@W Act 2005 is to provide a safe place of work for their employees and anyone affected by their business. Safety and health management ultimately means creating an environment free from the risk of injury and ill health. So it is not just focusing on safety issues but also the long term effects of the working environment on workers’ health, i.e exposure to noise, vibration, active pharmaceuticals, solvents, paints, boring repetitive work etc.
