Health and safety reporting system questioned by CSHS

The Centre for Safety and Health Sustainability (CSHS) has identified a lack of transparency in occupational safety and health sustainability reporting.

Entitled Current Practices in Occupational Health and Safety Sustainability Reporting, the research raised worries about ranking methodology, as some organisations recorded over ten work-related fatalities every year.

It found that the majority of corporations do not include metrics recommended by the Global Reporting Initiative, which is one of the most detailed sustainability reporting frameworks available.

CSHS chair Tom Cecich said: "Our research showed, for example, that the companies surveyed used six different formulas to calculate injury rate overall and at least 15 different methods were used to define ‘a report?worthy injury or incident."

Recently, the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) announced a new course to tackle the dangers associated with large-scale crowds and music events.

It will run for four days and is targeted towards venue and technical managers.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801539677-ADNFCR
