Great Britain’s health and safety record is the envy of much of the world. Key to this success has been the approach to managing workplace risk. Protecting and safeguarding a business’s most important asset – its workers.
When people are made ill or injured because of the work they do it has a big impact on the person affected, their family, and their colleagues. Plus, it can lead to disruption and damage the reputation of their organisation. It also impacts the whole economy by adding costs, making industries, companies, and ultimately Britain, less competitive.
Work Right is a campaign by the Health & Safety Executive aimed at helping smaller businesses and workers.
By joining the Work Right cause and spreading the word about the benefits of proportionate and effective risk management, we can make a difference and help businesses in England, Scotland and Wales, to Work Right – everyone has the right to go home healthy after work.
Whilst we have a health and safety record to be proud of, ill health, injury and fatal statistics show there is still more to be done.
