Health, Safety and Environment

There are hundreds of laws designed to keep workers safe at work and still the HSE recorded over 150 deaths at work last year.

This figure does not include those who die in road or other transport accidents while carrying out their work, or the thousands who die from industrial diseases such as cancer, or from exposure to asbestos. Many others are injured or suffer long term, debilitating, illnesses which can also have a great impact on their families.
