This report is intended to provide up-to-date information on UK business attitudes, intentions and performance vis a vis health and safety in the workplace. In addition, it aims to provide robust empirical evidence concerning any linkages and impacts of health and safety strategy and expenditure on an array of hard and soft performance measures of intermediate and final business performance. We also consider how health and safety issues interact with key strategic decisions in other core business areas to achieve the greatest impact on observable performance.
