The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health, (IOSH) has developed a new five-year strategy, called ‘Work 2022 – shaping the future of health and safety’, to help deliver advancements in health and safety at work across the world.
The S2 Partnership has previously highlighted falls from height as being the most common cause of fatality for UK workers – and this remains true today. Of the 144* fatal injuries to workers in 2015/16 in Great Britain, the highest number by accident kind were accounted for by fall from a height – 37 cases.
The S2 Partnership recently highlighted Asbestos Awareness Week, which took place 1st – 7th April. With increased awareness comes the realisation that there is still much work to be done to improve arrangements for managing asbestos.
