Republic of Ireland: Putting safety first
Health and safety in the workplace has become a hot topic in Ireland as the new Safety Health & Welfare at Work Bill 2004 comes up for discussion. Donal Dunne takes a look at the implications for employers and employees if the Bill is enacted
Due to be enacted in 2005, the Safety Health & Welfare at Work Bill 2004 will again raise the profile of Irish health and safety legislation and its impact upon employers and employees. The Bill follows on from the ‘Report of the Commission of Inquiry on Safety, Health & Welfare at Work’ in 1983 by Justice Barrington, which led to the implementation of the Safety, Health & Welfare at Work Act 1989. The 2004 Bill is also the result of a review of health and safety legislation by the Health & Safety Authority.
