A new strategy to help improve the health of the UK’s employees has been launched by the Health & Safety Executive (HSE).


The programme called Helping Great Britain Work Well has six themes and urges every stakeholder in the system – employers, managers and employees – to play their part.

The themes are:

  • Acting together: instead of a single employee or team being responsible for H&S, responsibility should be part of everyone’s role from the top, down.
  • Tackling ill health: while sudden accidents take the headlines, long-term action on ill health – especially early prevention – is needed.
  • Managing risk well: targeted relevant advice can reduce sick leave, increase efficiency, improve morale, improve an organisation’s reputation and lower costs.
  • Supporting small employers: larger organisations are urged to help smaller ones by raising awareness, especially of free information and guidance.
  • Keeping pace with change: we must anticipate the workplace challenges of tomorrow and resolve them using innovation and technology.
  • Sharing success: sharing the UK’s H&S innovation and success around the world will make more people safe and enable British organisations to do more business overseas.

There’s more information about the new strategy in the latest edition of Croner Solutions, a monthly publication offering business advice, which is avaiulable FREE to IoIC members.

This month’s edition also looks at a new legal ruling on whether discontinuing childcare vouchers during maternity leave is discriminatory, an update on an appeal over charging fees for employment tribunals, and ‘vicarious liability’ in the workplace based on an incident in which an employee was injured by an inmate while working in a prison.
