    New Welsh group aims to crackdown on work injuries

    A new group of health and safety professionals in Wales is soon to hold their first get together.

    The South Wales Safety Groups Alliance wants local businesses to check their health and safety systems in a bid to crackdown on work-related injuries and illnesses.

    Protecting workers a priority

    The meetings – the first of which will be held on May 13 – will look at practical ways to protect workers.

    The organisations that form the alliance are regional branches of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health, the International Institute of Risk and Safety Management, the South Wales Construction Safety Group, and two branches of the Occupational Health and Safety Group.

    Ann Jones MBE, chair of the IOSH branch, hopes the the groups can find new ways to enhance the way employees are looked after.

    Alongside the annual conference, there will be other events that will contribute towards improving safety and health in businesses.

    Risk management plans

    She says that the main way all industries can be safeguarded against accidents is by ensuring businesses have strong and robust plans to manage risks in workplaces.

    These risks can differ greatly depending on the industry. But this doesn’t mean companies in industries considered less dangerous can neglect safety and health.

    More than 200 people have registered for the inaugural conference, including safety and health professionals and other representatives from South Wales businesses.
