Has Health & Safety Unfairly Borne The Brunt of Negative Opinion? May 3rd, 2012, by Ken Buckley
Once a negative story about health and safety hits the headlines, it enters the public psyche and damages perceptions.
In the UK, the Health and Safety Executive has just launched a panel to investigate health and safety myths, to differentiate between legitimate decisions that protect staff against real risks from ‘jobsworth decisions’ not required in law.
This panel will help nurture a commonsense approach to workplace wellbeing, and could hopefully lead the trend for the rest of the world.
