Now a day we cannot think any danger and harm is happen to worker, staff, and colleague in the place of working. This is why there is some legislations, laws, policies, guidelines establish to save the people who are working under any hazardous or harmful condition. According to title of my Assignment of Health and safety, I will try to show my understanding about this in details in later part of my writing step by step of following on the task basis which can cover those:-
