The health safety and wellbeing of people affectded by our working activites is of paramount importance and no one disputes this. Pragmaitc advise deliverred by a suitably qualified, competed person is a business enabler – if the economy of the UK is going to compete on a world level we need world class people driving and support it
Chartered health and safety practitioners represent the very best in thier field – Keeping people safe at work is just good business management and like all good business management it should add to teh wellbeing of the business itselve.
We need to take the scare mongering out of the equation and that can be done by ensuring the people giving advise are accountable for the advise they give business. IOSH chartered menmber are bound by the a code of ethics, many giving health and safey adise are not, that is both dengerous and not good business.
