Identify the People and Groups Who May Be Affected by the Health and Safety

Successfully managing health and safety in the workplace relies on commitment, consultation and co-operation. Everyone in the workplace needs to understand the need for the health and safety, what their role is in making the workplace safer, and how they can fulfil their responsibilities and duties. All employees have a duty to ensure, so far as is reasonably practicable, the health, safety and welfare of their employees. They also have a duty to protect non-employees from risks arising out of their work activities.
All employees at work, even visitors and quests who comes to the office can be affected by the health and safety; it is because all employees and non-employees coming to the building are getting their Safety Induction with all the general instructions.
As an employer I am responsible for the health, safety and welfare of all our employees, whether they have a disability or not. I cannot always tell when someone has a disability and some people may not make you aware that they are disabled, particularly where it will not interfere with their ability to do the job. My Department’s HSE Representative has a duty to consult with all employees, on their representatives, on issues relating to health and safety. They know about the job and how the way it is done can impact upon them, and they are likely to have good ideas about how to change things to make the situation better. Reasonable adjustments may also be provided for employees with mental health conditions, including those which have been linked to stress. Employees and employers are working together to discuss what might be helpful.
