The Health and Safety Legislation require that employers have a duty of care to protect employee for example:
* Provide a safe workplace
* Carry out risk assessments to assess the dangers of certain work activities
* Provide training to staff
* Provide PPE
* Ensure regular health and safety checks are undertaken.

The employer should have infection prevention control policies and procedures for the staff.
The manager will support and advise the Carer in respect of these procedures.

It is an employers responsibility to
be educated or have someone available at all
times that is educated on blood born
pathogens and other types of
contamination, related to public safety, and
the proper intervention and control of
situations involving them. In other words if
an employee has a contagious illness (like
the Flu or a Cold) and that employee works
with or around food (restaurant, deli,
supermarket stocker, etc) then it is the
employers responsibility to place that
worker in another environment so they
cannot contaminate the food or the surfaces
used to prepare or move/carry food. If there
are no other environments for the employee
then they should be sent home to recover
depending on employers process. When it
comes to infection, are you referring to a
bacterial infection like one that would result
from a cut or scrape? Or are you using
infection as a general term for contracted
illnesses? If you are talking about a bacterial
infection odds are you cannot prove that the
result of your infection was acquired on the
job, regardless of how specific of an
infection it is, and the employer will likely
claim no liability even if the infection
resulted in major injury. If you are referring
to illnesses, then it is the employers
responsibility to prevent other people from
being exposed to an illness to an extent,
such as the food situation I mentioned. If an
employer has allowed a sick employee to
handle food DHEC should be contacted and
informed immediately to prevent a possible
spread of the illness to customers.
