5 min read

Health and Safety at Work Key Terms by JW W Stranks. The book has been written principally as a revision aid for people studying for examinations in the subject, in particular the examinations set by the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (NEBOSH). To this extent, in the identification and selection of key terms, the current syllabus for the NEBOSH National Diploma in Occupational Safety and Health was taken into account and the syllabus reference is incorporated where appropriate. This book is also targeted at those who may have limited involvement in health and safety, such as lawyers, human resources managers, engineers, and those involved in construction activities.

Occupational health and safety is a diverse subject embracing many disciplines, such as engineering, law, occupational psychology, construction, physics, and chemistry. On this basis, both health and safety practitioners and those studying for
qualifications in the subject may encounter terms with which they are unfamiliar.

burden (onus) of proof (1B1) Criminal law generally requires the prosecution to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that a person committed an offence.
Under the HSWA, the burden of proof rests with the accused to prove that it was not practicable or reasonably practicable or there were no better practicable means to satisfy the duty or requirement. In a trial for a breach of the HSWA and/or regulations, the prosecution need only prove that a breach of the Act and/ or regulations took place, and that the accused was responsible for same.
Where the accused cannot prove that it was not practicable or reasonably practicable or that there were no better practicable means, the case would be considered proved against him or her.
