Best Answer

Being held accountable for something or some action means that you are responsible for that thing or action.

If you are held accountable for, for example, unlocking the doors at the beginning of the day, it is your job to see that they are unlocked. If they are not unlocked at the designated time, it will be considered your fault and you may get a negative response from your employer.
