Bosses asked to involve workers in health and safety decisions

12th March 2010 | Health and Safety Signs

Company bosses are being urged to involve their employees more fully in health and safety practices, it emerged yesterday (March 11th).

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has launched its 'do your bit' campaign, a year-long initiative offering firms relevant training and the benefit of a new advisory website.

Judith Hackitt, chair of the HSE, explained that studies have indicated that incorporating workers' views on safety - such as the use of warning signs - has had a noticeably positive effect.

She said: "Where businesses have good workforce involvement they also often achieve better performance in health and safety and experience better productivity because their staff are motivated and feel engaged in the organisation."

The website also includes first-hand accounts from company bosses who have benefited considerably from making the employees part of their approach to health and safety strategies.

Earlier this week, the HSE revealed that it has made a number of improvements to its 'Safety Bulletin' tool, which warns firms about various dangers in the workplace.
