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.
