Positive results in HSEÂ’s triennial report

15th January 2014 | Health and Safety Signs

A review of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), the national watchdog tasked with preventing workplace accidents, has highly praised the organisation.

The HSE is responsible for making sure that the UK’s workplaces are safe for employees. This means making sure that safe practices of work have been planned, safety signs put up and risk assessments carried out, among other things.

The organisation received “nearly universal praise” from the review, which concluded that the HSE’s services were still required, and it should remain in existence.

Other health and safety bodies were also pleased with the result. Richard Jones, head of policy and public affairs at the Institution of Occupational Safety and Health, said: “This review is an overwhelmingly positive endorsement of the work and professionalism of the HSE.”

Roger Bibbings, the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents’ occupational safety adviser, said: “We are very pleased that the review has come down unequivocally in favour of maintaining the HSE as a non-departmental public body.”ADNFCR-2754-ID-801682391-ADNFCR
