The BSC is giving its full backing to the new European Campaign for Safety and Health at Work, which in 2008-09 focuses on risk assessment.

Officially launched in June, the two-year campaign aims to raise awareness of the importance of risk assessments in reducing workplace accidents. As part of the campaign, UK employers will be encouraged to take part in European Health and Safety Week, which this year takes place from 20-24 October.

In comments featured in a press release issued by the European Agency for Safety and Health at Work, BSC Chief Executive Brian Nimick said: “Risk assessments are a crucial way of making sure that businesses are aware of their health and safety needs so that they can make sure they get it right. A good health and safety system in the workplace saves lives and families.”
