The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) is asking for ideas about how it can help businesses become safer.

Work-related accidents and ill-health cost businesses almost £8 billion every year, with absenteeism, low productivity and legal bills being faced by a number of bosses.

Overall, the cost of health and safety failures to the British economy is believed to be around £22 billion.

Jane White, research and information services manager at IOSH, said: “We want to champion businesses and support their health and safety needs.

“It undoubtedly saves lives. Done well, realistic health and safety can deliver cost savings and help a business to grow – saving businesses millions of pounds each year.”

Ms White went on to say that British businesses are in danger of losing their competitive edge as a result of failures to tackle the risks of injury and illness in the workplace.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801585694-ADNFCR
