The British Safety Council will soon be holding their annual conference at the America Square Conference Centre. On the 15th October 2014, the main focus of this coming together will be occupational health issues. Absences from work due to work-related illnesses is believed to be far a more serious issue than accidents taking place at work. Although nobody could call accident avoidance measures in the workplace easy, they are definitely more so when compared to dealing with work related illnesses. Recent improvements initiated by the HSE have meant that accidents in the UK workplace have been significantly reduced. However, the same level of attention has not been given to work-related illnesses and this is going to be addressed in full at the forthcoming conference. It is thought that some 1.8 million workers are suffering from this epidemic and the overall cost to the UK industry as a whole has not gone unnoticed. A range of experts will be discussing possible action plans to combat this rising issue and a number of potential solutions will be put into place thereafter.
