Role of HR in Work Safety and Security

The role and responsibilities of the HR director/manager may depend upon the nature of the industry (i.e. banking, mining, health, government, etc.) and the size and complexity of the organization.
- I have seen some HR groups with responsibility for physical security, but I am not certain it is the norm.
- I have not seen HR having any role in e-security.
- Generally, I would see HR as being responsible for criminal record checks (via the police), employee IDs, employee safety (from the customer or the public), workers compensation, and occupational health and safety.
- Potentially, HR may have some role in staffing needs during a physical, environmental, health or other disaster that impacts the organization.
