HSE - New Health and Work Strategy
23 Feb 2017
The BSSA regularly attends H&S related work-groups and can report that the Health & Safety Executive has now published their new Health & Work Strategy which includes sector plans and information on their main focus areas, which include:
- Work Related Musculoskeletal Disorders are the most common cause of occupational ill health (41pc of cases).
- Work Related Stress is the second most commonly reported cause of occupational ill health (37pc of cases).
These two areas account for a total of 89pc of all lost working days.
- BSSA members will be updated as further information and guidance becomes available.
