The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has backed the Health and Safety Authority's new Strategy Statement 2013-2015.

IOSH believes the approach will help to reduce the number of deaths in Ireland's workplaces, especially in industries such as agriculture and fishing.

The strategy outlines a work programme, which has been designed to decrease the number of operational injuries, illnesses and fatalities in Ireland.

IOSH Ireland branch chair Michelle Peate-Morgan said: "We welcome the Health and Safety Authority’s (HSA) new three-year strategy and Minister Richard Bruton’s comment that health and safety is central to successful enterprise.

"The strategy can help to reduce the number of fatalities in our workplaces, particularly in the wake of worrying agriculture and fishing deaths in Ireland in recent years."

In recent weeks, IOSH welcomed new government proposals to help companies manage sickness absence.

The plans, which were outlined by the Department of Work and Pensions, include a state-funded Independent Assessment Service.  ADNFCR-2754-ID-801531273-ADNFCR
