Great Britain’s health and safety record is the envy of much of the world and 4see believe we should all be proud of this. Central to this effort is the focus we all place on protecting people by managing risk in a proportionate and effective way, supporting innovation and increasing productivity.

The HSE, through the issuance of its 2016, Helping Great Britain work well strategy document, is seeking to influence the systems we use and improve our already impressive record.

You can visit the HSE’s or 4see’s website to view The Strategy Document here. It focuses on six strategic themes.

  • Acting Together
  • Tackling Ill Health
  • Managing Risk Well
  • Supporting Small Employers
  • Keeping Pace with Change
  • Sharing our Success

Health and safety should not be a responsibility assigned to a particular individual or part of an organisation, but an integral part of everyone’s role. There needs to be much broader ownership of the issues. This means engaging everyone who shares the responsibility for helping Great Britain work well, because they have a vital role in managing risk and preventing damage to individuals, businesses and the economy.

Across each nation, region or sector, we need collective ownership that best reflects local circumstances. The regulators will retain their key roles, providing targeted advice and guidance for key audience groups and taking enforcement action when and where necessary. Encouraging others to take ownership of health and safety will be critical in making this theme successful. This means everyone collaborating to reach those who may have been less engaged.

Through its partnership with C-Link, 4see can help you with Health, Safety, Environmental and Training Services and is focused on ensuring that all of C-Link’s Specialists are compliant with the latest legislation.
