With the World Day for Safety and Health at Work approaching, the British Safety Council (BSC) has shown its support by promoting awareness and greater understanding of health and safety management.
It has released a series of short videos on the benefits of good health and safety, filmed with experts from the European Agency on Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA).
EU-OSHA project manager Dr Dietmar Elsler said: “The evidence is clear. It shows that investing in health and safety produces a financial return for employers and helps to improve working conditions for workers.
“The agency demonstrates that it has continued to successfully promote the economic benefits of investing in workplace safety and health by stressing the importance of working together.”
BSC policy and communications director Joscelyne Shaw said: “There is a growing recognition of the value of a preventive strategy that is beneficial to business as well as to government and society.
“As a corporate membership body, we remain committed to capturing and sharing this insight and enabling others to benefit from the learning and innovation that this can create within businesses and business processes.”
