HSE initiative. Helping Britain work well

great britains health and safety recordThe Health and Safety Executive have released a new initiative aimed at helping Britain to work well and of course, safely. The graph shows how much we have improved over the last ten years.

Head of HSE, Judith Hackett CBE, said: "We can be proud of Britain’s record on work-related safety and health – it’s one of the best in the world. Making this great record even better is now the challenge, so that we can all continue to help the nations and regions of GB work well. Getting risk management right is an enabler for productivity, innovation and growth and is integral to business success as well as the wellbeing of workers".

You can see a video about the initiative on the HSE's website presented by Judith Hackett and follow their progress on social media at the hashtag #HelpGBWorkWell.
