Contributing to a positive health and safety culture in local authorities


Annual HSE conference and the launch of 'Go home healthy'

Our first external annual conference took place on 18 September and the launch of the 'Go home healthy' campaign. The all-day event, which took place in London, is part of an approach to communicating with stakeholders, showcasing HSE, our priorities and recent events.  This is one of the key strands of the Helping Great Britain work well strategy.  

Tackling Workplace Stress using the HSE Stress Management Standards

Work-related stress is the second most commonly reported cause of occupational ill health in Great Britain. HSE's Stress Management Standards are designed to assist employers in identifying the causes of work related stress and to identify and implement solutions to reduce the effects of work related stress.  You can find more detail on the stress Management standards approach hereThere is also clear joint guidance available from the TUC and Health and Safety Executive (HSE), which aims to help union representatives work with their employer to address work related stress using the Stress Management Standard approach. 

Unite Welfare Campaign

Unite is campaigning for better toilet facilities for UK's 100,000 plus bus drivers.  Employers must provide the right workplace facilities for everyone in their workplace 'as much as is reasonable practicable'.  Further information can be found in HSE's Welfare at work leaflet.

Safety alert – Certain Types of Pool Hall Lighting Systems on Runners

The purpose of this safety alert is to advise owners or managers of premises where such lighting systems may be found of the risks of collapse from a certain type of pool hall lighting system following an incident at a public swimming pool. For further information, click here. 

HSE to make cost recovery dispute process fully independent

HSE has announced that it is to consult on proposals to make its cost recovery scheme dispute process fully independent. The Fee for Intervention (FFI) scheme was introduced in October 2012 under regulations that made those who break health and safety laws liable for recovery of HSE's related costs, including inspection, investigation and taking enforcement action. The scheme shifts the cost of regulating workplace health and safety from the public purse to businesses which break the law and ensures the cost burden of HSE intervention is picked up by those companies and not taxpayers.  Further information on making the scheme fully independent can be found here .

Managing strategies to help protect and promote the health and safety of older workers MOSHG event – Manchester on 31 May 2017

Manchester Occupational Health and Safety Group are hosting an afternoon event to promote the health and safety of older workers.  There will be a talk by Carolyn Drake, Loughborough University, supported by an HSE Workplace officer.  To read more about this event, click here.  Further  information to help employers take older workers into account when considering how to meet their responsibilities can be found on the HSE website.  TUC have also produced guidance on the health and safety of older workers.
