Every employer has a duty to provide a safe place of work.

At common law an employer is under a duty to take reasonable care for the safety of his employees in all the circumstances, so as not to expose them to an unnecessary risk” .
Samson Emuru vs. OlSuswa Farm Ltd Nakuru HCCA No. 6 of 2003 that: The court stated that: The duty of the employers to provide the servant with a safe place of work not merely to warn against unusual dangers known to them, … but also to make the place of employment…as safe as the exercise of reasonable skill and care would permit…The duty thus described is a higher… the master is under a duty to make his servants to take reasonable steps to avoid harm arise.” For more see: http://kenyalaw.org/caselaw/cases/view/19500
