The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has called for more measures to maintain the wellbeing of staff across the UK.

IOSH is set to meet with politicians from all three of the main political parties in order to emphasise how good health and wellbeing can increase productivity, morale and profit.

The Institution’s head of policy and public affairs Richard Jones said: "We need better awareness, training for GPs, tax exemptions for employers and more recognition of the key role of the health and safety profession."

Mr Jones explained that health and safety professionals have lots of practical advice for improving people's lives, allowing for a number of disorders to be prevented successfully.

Among these are hearing loss, chronic lung disease, skin disorders, disabling muscle and joint pain and stress related illness.

He stressed that, although illness is less instant and dramatic than injury, it can be equally devastating and needs to be tackled.ADNFCR-2754-ID-801638333-ADNFCR
