HSE Guide To Businesses Promoted Again

Click to download the guideThe Health & Safety Executive (HSE) is once again urging leaders in the transport and communications sector to take advantage of a free guide that could bring significant benefits to their business. The guidance, entitled, ‘Leading health and safety at work’, is issued jointly by the Institute of Directors & HSE. 

The call comes as research revealed that over a quarter (26%) of transport and communication industry leaders surveyed knew of the publication.

An HSE spokesperson said:

"Despite trying times for this sector, it is pleasing to see this level of awareness amongst industry leaders. However, I would urge others to take advantage of this free publication, written by business people for business people."

 ‘Leading health and safety at work’, ING417, is available free of charge and was launched in October 2007.

The guidance is written ‘by directors for directors’ and offers them straightforward practical advice on how to; Plan, Deliver, Monitor and Review, health and safety in the workplace. Production of the guidance was overseen by an IoD led steering group with nominees from the Confederation of British Industry (CBI), Federation of Small Businesses (FSB), Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH), Local Government Association (LGA), National Council for Voluntary Organisations (NCVO), NHS Confederation, Trades Union Congress (TUC) and Warwick Law School, University of Warwick
