The worker involvement (managing noise and hand-arm vibration risks) project
Many employers recognise that involving their employees in managing health and safety risks makes good business sense.
In order to help employers take the initiative and maximise the value of engaging the workforce, the Health and Safety Executive, in collaboration with the EEF, the Construction Federation, FMB and Unions UCATT and GMB, has set up a pilot project to develop worker involvement in a small group of companies in the manufacturing and construction sectors.
