  • IOSH asbestos policy

    IOSH

    Asbestos is the greatest single cause of work related deaths in the UK, with past exposure causing around 5,000 deaths currently each year.

    Because all types of asbestos fibres are potentially harmful, IOSH believes people should be protected from inhaling them and that risk management principles should be embedded throughout our education and training system.

  • IOSH accountability policy

    IOSH

    IOSH believes forward thinking organisations are led by Directors (and their equivalents) who provide leadership and direction on effective occupational health and safety and deliver a culture for protecting lives and improving reputation, resilience and results.

    We supported improved guidance to help Directors with their health and safety responsibilities. We also supported the introduction of the Corporate Manslaughter and Corporate Homicide Act 2007 and the definitive guidelines on sentencing as deterrents to poor corporate health and safety standards.

  • IOSH working hours policy

    IOSH

    IOSH fully recognises the positive benefits to health and wellbeing that rewarding and well-managed employment can bring, including the proper management of working time. This is important, as working excessive hours can seriously harm workers’ health and wellbeing, safety and performance.

    We believe that occupational safety and health practitioners can provide valuable advice to managers to help ensure that working time arrangements do not comprise the health and safety of workers and others.

  • IOSH worker involvement policy

    IOSH

    Worker involvement in health and safety is a two-way process where employers and employees can work together on spotting, solving and owning health and safety problems.

    IOSH believes that employers need to do more to work with employees and employee representatives to address occupational safety and health issues. In addition to strong health and safety leadership and access to competent advice, we see worker involvement as an essential part of effective health and safety management.

  • IOSH wellbeing policy

    IOSH

    'Wellbeing' is about people's experience of their quality of life, including their working life. We know that 'good work' is good for health and wellbeing and among other things, this is work that's healthy, safe, supportive and accommodates people's needs.

    As large parts of employees' lives are spent at work, employers can and should play an important role in helping them achieve better quality working lives and the occupational safety and health community can help support improved wellbeing at work.

    Work-related health and safety risks need to be effectively managed before the introduction of wellbeing programmes and these should be based on worker consultation and support wider strategies, such as health and safety and HR
