Helping Great Britain work well

We can be proud of Britain’s record on work-related safety and health – it’s one of the best in the world. Making this great record even better is now the challenge, so that we can all continue to help the nations and regions of GB work well. Getting risk management right is an enabler for productivity, innovation and growth and is integral to business success as well as the wellbeing of workers.
