Sector plan for health and safety in public services
This sector covers a range of services, across health and social care, education, local and central government, the emergency services and the military. Over 9 million people work in the sector, representing around 30% of the GB workforce, and it contributes around £300 billion to the economy.
A common factor across the sector is the interface with members of the public who could be affected by work activities.
This plan covers the current position, priorities and what HSE will do to help Great Britain work well.
