You and the Law


Blood spills must be scrupulously cleaned and decontamination practices must be adequate and thorough in their application. Employers have a legal duty to protect all on their property from the risk of infection from blood borne pathogens. The law also places a responsibility on employees to cooperate with their employers to enable them to comply with the law. The primary responsibility rests with the employer who must ensure an incident management policy is in place that is functional and has the full support of everyone likely to be involved.

The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 (ref 1), also referred to as HSWA, is the primary piece of legislation covering occupational health and safety in the United Kingdom. Under HSWA, employers have a duty to provide a safe place of work and protect the health and safety of their employees and others that may be affected.
