Helping Great Britain Work Well’s call to employers to do more pays dividends

Posted on 30 November 2017

Employers publicly committing to making positive changes to their firms’ health and safety culture has resulted in an estimated 300,000 workers reaping the benefits of improved health and safety practices.  .

Earlier this year, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), along with Unions and Industry leaders called for broader ownership of workplace health and safety by asking for public commitments from business.

The response from many of Great Britain’s top businesses was so positive, with more than 100 organisations making commitments, that on Friday 24 November, HSE is launching an online community dedicated to inspiring business to share their commitment to Helping Great Britain Work Well.

The launch of the new web community will establish a social sharing network where companies and businesses can make their commitments, share their journey of improvement and help each other and encourage others follow in their footsteps.

HSE chair Martin Temple said: “Making a workplace commitment to health and safety is something that takes time, energy and passion, but the rewards for delivering on that commitment are incalculable.”

“Sensible and proportionate health and safety prevents ill-health, death and injury in the workplace and is good for business and good for workers.”

To find out more and see what other businesses are doing, join the Help Great Britain Work Well web community and join the conversation at #HelpGBWorkWell. In the community you will see many excellent examples of the activities and commitments being made to help improve health, safety and wellbeing in the workplace.

It is estimated at least 300,000 workers have benefitted since the commitments initiative was launched last year with companies introducing many schemes to benefit workers.
