An employer’s duty of care is the legal and moral duty to protect its employees from unnecessary risk of harm. Learn how AlertMedia helps its customers fulfill their duty of care.
EMPLOYER DUTY OF CARE CHALLENGES
Duty of care law varies by state and country. Familiarize yourself with the duty of care laws in every area your employees will be working in, or you could find yourself liable.
Doing your planning before a situation arises is crucial. Decide how your company will respond to different situations, so that when the time comes to act, you won’t be caught without a plan.
Go Above and Beyond
Duty of care is not about just doing the legal bare minimum. Employers who go above and beyond to embrace their duty of care make their employees’ safety their number one priority.
The legal standard for most states’ duty of care law is foreseeability. Take the time to consider all the possible situations that could arise for your company, so you don’t end up regretting it later.
Accurate Contact Information
One way to leave your employees at risk is by having inaccurate or outdated information. Make sure your information is always up-to-date and if possible, have it update across platforms automatically.
Let your employees know the measures you are taking to protect them. This will make them more open to doing their part and helping you help them.
