The Health and Safety of Great Britain \\ Be part of the solution

Our goal \\ To adapt and customise approaches to help the increasing numbers of SMEs in different sectors comply with their health and safety obligations.

Our goal \\ To encourage strong leadership in championing the importance of, and a common-sense approach to, health and safety in the workplace.

Our goal \\ To motivate focus on the core aims of health and safety and, by doing so, to help risk makers and managers distinguish between real health and safety issues and trivial or ill-informed criticism.
