Shaping Britain’s health and safety strategy: #helpgbworkwell

helpgbworkwell_blogWe know that Britain has a health and safety record we can all be very proud of – it’s one of the best in the world. But we also know that we can be even better.

Following the release of the key health and safety statistics for 2014/15 late last year, the HSE has come up with a new initiative, #helpgbworkwell, a new challenge for all employers and health and safety representatives in the country to hold on to what’s good and resolve to change what gets in the way of us improving.

The #helpgbworkwell strategy has 6 key themes:

  • Acting together - Promoting broader ownership of health and safety in Britain
  • Tackling ill health - Highlighting and tackling the costs of work-related ill health
  • Managing risk - Simplifying risk management and helping business to grow
  • Supporting small employers - Giving SMEs advice so they know what they have to do
  • Keeping pace with change - Anticipating and tackling new health and safety challenges
  • Sharing our success

Promoting the benefits of Great Britain’s world-class health and safety system.
