H&S is everybody's responsiblity, but they have diferent levels of responsibilities. As the workers need to be engaged by following the organisation policy and engage with the training programs. The biggest responsibility is held by the senior manager that needs to engage with the H & S processes (i.e. designing suitable policies, create new strategies, identify knowledge gaps, provide the right learning and training, manage crisis, etc)(Martin & Marion,2005). The main issue relates to the manager inefficiency in properly controlling all of the above. In this situation the organisation will be a victim of the manager's wrong decision making, and all the employees are part of it and could be affected as well.
It is important for everybody to ask themselves in a potential future job if the organisation is safe to work with, find out about their previous accident cases and what the organisation did to avoid future risks.
