Dear Sir,

(Re: Top entrepreneur tired of red tape says next project will be overseas, FT, 3 May, P4)

IOSH now produces its own Hi Viz jacket because it is a lightweight garment which reduces the risk of being hit by moving vehicles - either fork lift trucks in a poorly lit warehouse or for workers on the motorway.

IOSH would be pleased to present Mr Atkin with a jacket, and take the opportunity to show him how good health and safety isn't red tape, it's just a good way to run a business and look after your staff and customers.
