On behalf of his client Premier Partnership Business Development Expert and Motivational Speaker Terry Ryan has devised and implemented a Sales and Marketing Strategy for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) for a national campaign.
Bosses are being encouraged to get their employees more involved in health and safety in a bid to reduce injury and ill health.
The Health and Safety Executive’s (HSE) new campaign ‘do your bit’ is in response to workplace research which provides evidence to suggest that involving workers has a positive effect on health and safety performance.
The ‘do your bit’ campaign is a year long initiative offering free or subsidised training courses to help businesses get their employees more involved in improving their health and safety.
To support the campaign, HSE has launched a new website which provides practical advice and materials for businesses and details of the upcoming series of training opportunities. In addition, it features first hand accounts from businesses who are already reaping the rewards from actively involving workers in health and safety.
Judith Hackitt, Chair of HSE, said: “Where businesses have good workforce involvement they also often achieve better performance in health and safety and experience better productivity because their staff are motivated and feel engaged in the organisation.”
HSE is aiming the campaign and subsidised training for new potential health and safety representatives at the construction, manufacturing, transport and motor vehicle repair sectors.
Any organisations seeking to improve on their existing consultation and worker involvement arrangements can express their interest in a fully funded training package.
