London, United Kingdom, August 04, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- "Duty of Care" is the obligation of every employer to take all steps which are "reasonably possible" to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of their employees. And that obligation does not stop at the office door or the factory gate. The moment you leave the premises the ability of the employer to manage risk decreases dramatically as the employee is exposed to all sorts of known and unknown variables.
The Safety and Health of Workers and Work Directive (Council Directive 89/391/EEC, 1989) and Posted Workers Directive imposes a general Duty of Care on employers and requires that specific measures be taken. This includes the development of an overall protection policy, elimination of known and potential risks, awareness and adaptation of new, safe technology, training and consultation with employees, and health surveillance.
Supported by the Municipality of The Hague and the Hague Security Delta, Personnel Protection & Safety Europe will look at the legal framework and financial implications, as well as examine the risk, the technology and services available to make sure things go right, and manage things when they go wrong!
