    Views sought on safety disclosure

    Views sought on safety disclosure

    Members of the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) are being urged to have their say on the implementation of a new European directive requiring some firms to disclose health and safety information in their management reports.

    The directive will affect a host of companies including banks, insurance firms and other organisations with over 500 employees.

    The directive comes from the European Commission and must be turned into legislation by the Government by December.

    The consultation on the issue is being run by the Department for Business Innovation and Skills (BIS).

    Views on wider reforms sought

    Members wishing to make their views known should send them to consultation@iosh.co.uk by March 31. Further information, meanwhile, is available on the institution’s website.

    It is hoped the consultation will raise awareness about the directive among firms and ascertain whether an appetite exists for wider reforms on the reporting of health and safety and other non-financial information.

    IOSH’s head of policy and public affairs, Richard Jones, says having “meaningful” corporate reporting can help improve the way firms perform when it comes to health and safety.

    The consultation process can be used to help ensure Britain leads the way and has an effective reporting framework.

    That in turn, he says, can boost the confidence of stakeholders, stimulate investment and contribute to economic success.
