    Health and safety plan goes on the road

    Health and safety plan goes on the road

    Bosses and staff alike are being urged to give their views this week on the Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) five-year strategy from 2016 to 2020.

    Two of the HSE’s seven roadshows are being held before the end of the week. Today sees Liverpool host the fifth roadshow and York the sixth on January 29.

    In Birmingham on Monday, Karen McDonnell, president of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), addressed delegates.

    This followed the first 3 roadshows in Glasgow, Cardiff and Bristol. The final event will be held in London on February 2.

    Events address workplace safety

    The promotion of staff workplace safety is one of the strategy’s themes.

    The others include pooling the UK’s health and safety methods with the rest of the world, backing smaller companies, and foreseeing and meeting new technology’s challenges and the different working methods they will entail.

    They will also look at bringing to people’s attention and combating the strain of ill health brought about by work, and managing risks proportionately so that productivity is not compromised out of hand.

    Work accidents under the microscope

    In Glasgow, Ms McDonnell called on everyone to play their part in preventing work accidents
    and illnesses.

    She said the events are about giving staff and bosses the chance to voice their opinions on the latest HSE strategy.

    Ms McDonnell called workplace safety “crucially important” and urged everyone to visit a roadshow near them.

    She also encouraged companies to consider their employees’ health as well as their safety as a component of a care culture.

    In addition to the roadshows, the Executive is staging online discussion groups under the hashtag #HelpGBWorkWell.

    Head of public affairs and policy for the IOSH, Richard Jones said that the strategy forums are “great” for getting everybody involved in the health and safety discussion.

    He said that human resources workers, regulators, staff, company bosses and Occupation Safety and Health (OSH) all have important roles to perform in bettering Britain’s safety and health record before 2020.
