An Accident Reduction Charter has been renewed by the ESA in order to improve health and safety conditions in UK workplaces. This was originally launched back in 2004 and this is the second revision to take place since then. The ESA is of the opinion that we should never remain complacent about accidents in the workplace until they are completely wiped out. Amongst the five aims of the Accident Reduction Charter are to show a noticeable commitment to the way we deal with health and safety in the workplace through leadership.
A 7% reduction in accidents in the workplace was achieved since 2013 and it is hoped that the renewed revision in the Charter will further drive down these statistics in the future. They believe that even one fatality in the UK workplace is unacceptable and it is only by education and leading by example that this can become a reality one day. A concentrated effort is required each and every day by all health and safety representatives in our workplaces before these desired targets can be met and subsequently surpassed.
