Health and Safety Executive statistics show that each year, over a million workers are injured or made ill by their work in the UK (2018). In 2017, the total costs of workplace injuries and ill health to the UK economy was £15 billion, and 15.4 million working days were lost due to work related stress, depression or anxiety (MHFA 2018). Not only are employees experiencing work-related ill health, but also many UK workers are subject to inadequate working conditions. A recent Unite the Union study discovered that tens of thousands of workers across the UK are either not provided with proper toilets or have restrictions placed upon them in using facilities.

In view of these challenges, this symposium will offer health and safety practitioners, HR professionals, local authorities and other key stakeholders with a timely and invaluable opportunity to scrutinise current health and safety regulations and develop priorities for delivering enhanced protections in British workplaces.

Delegates Will:

  • Discuss the effects of poor mental health on employees and making mental health a policy priority
  • Consider the role of local authorities and the HSE as enforcers and regulators
  • Learn how to support smaller businesses’ and self employed workers’ health and safety rights
  • Share ways to simplify risk management and reduce the contributors to work related ill health
  • Identify ways for businesses to provide effective care and reduce staff turnover due to stress
  • Explore upcoming trends and developments in health and safety policy
