As a general guide, if you are an employee, then you must ensure that your actions at work do not affect the health and safety of either yourself, or others, such as co-workers and members of the public.
You must also ensure that you use any personal protective equipment, eg safety boots and goggles, which may be provided to you by your employer.
Failure to comply with your legal duties may result in enforcement action being taken against you.
All working activities are covered by the Health and Safety at Work (Jersey) Law 1989 and depending on the type of work being carried out, may also be subject to Regulations and / or Approved Codes of Practice.
