Duty of Care

Duty Of Care

Duty of Care is more than a general notion. It is a legal requirement. Organisations have four main common law obligations in terms of their duty of care to employees. An employer must take reasonable steps to ensure they provide their employees:

  • A Safe place of Work;
  • A Safe system of Work;
  • Competent Personnel; and
  • Safe equipment.

In addition, organisations are subject to statutory duties pursuant to a number of pieces of legislation such as the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, 2005.

ABF's training programmes can assist organisations in discharging their duties, particularly where they are placing personnel in hostile environments. ABF's modularised Security Awareness Training package will not only train individuals to recognise and react to threats overseas, it will also enhance an organisations security culture.
