Make your commitment

‘Helping Great Britain work well’ sees people from businesses, industry bodies and HSE all taking responsibility for protecting workers and preventing Ill health and injury.

Helping Great Britain work well is showcasing ‘commitments’ from people and companies from all over the country playing their part by delivering a health and safety initiative which helps Britain work well.

What is a commitment?

A Helping Great Britain work well commitment demonstrates ownership of health and safety within an organisation.

It recognises good business practice and a commitment to protecting workers and preventing ill health.

It’s a way of sharing what your organisation is doing to look after the health and safety of workers and growing your reputation as a leader in the area.

By sharing your commitment you help others to stay safe and well and help Great Britain work well.

The benefits of making a commitment
