    What is Safety Groups UK?


    Safety Groups UK is responsible for co-ordinating local safety groups across the UK, whilst raising awareness of health and safety issues in the workplace. The organisation holds three open meetings a year and organises special seminars. It also:

    • Forms partnerships with other health and safety organisations
    • Supports over 700 health and safety groups across the UK, promoting and offering health and safety advice
    • Works with sponsors to help small firms change their behaviour

    Established in 1947 as the ‘National Safety Group Council’, the organisation was re-launched in 2006 as Safety Groups UK. They aim to promote membership of health and safety groups for small, medium and large businesses across the country, whilst influencing the formulation of health and safety policy and strategies. They also provide training and education in health and safety and disseminate information to their member health and safety groups.

    Have you been injured at work?

    Some workplaces are undoubtedly more hazardous than others – for example if you work in construction or with heavy machinery, there are more obvious risks. However, accidents have the potential to occur in any workplace – you could trip over a box of files in an office or be scalded by a faulty kettle. If you’ve been injured, there is usually a three year time limit in place to make a claim, and it is worth finding out if your employer is a member of a health and safety group. If they have failed to follow health and safety regulations and procedures, you may be able to claim compensation for your injuries. Contact a personal injury lawyer to find out whether you may be eligible.
