The need for a healthy workforce has been earmarked as one of the requirements for a prosperous Scottish economy, a minister has highlighted.

Michael Matheson MSP, the Scottish government's public health minister, told people at the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health's West of Scotland Branch event that the country should make a link between good health and safety and financial stability.

Mr Matheson said: "It is important, if we are to have a thriving economy, for employers in Scotland, public and private, corporate or micro, to embrace the healthy working lives ethos."

Such a move could mean more safety signage being installed across the country, with the MSP adding that a healthy respect for people's wellbeing is also essential.

Healthy and safety across the UK could be improved due to the news that the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has unveiled the country's first BTEC-accredited health and safety course.

RoSPA's Manual Handling Trainers Course is the first of its kind to boast BTEC level 3 accreditationADNFCR-2754-ID-801302992-ADNFCR
