New IOSH campaign launched in Dublin

IOSH has launched the Lif€ Savings campaign in Ireland. The campaign, designed to demonstrate that good health and safety management saves money as well as lives, was launched at Dublin Castle on 12 February.

12 February 2014

Around 70 guests joined Ireland Branch members at the launch, including a number of TDs and ministers. Martin O’Halloran, CEO of the Health and Safety Authority, delivered a keynote at the event. Talking about the €3 billion annual loss to the Irish economy he said: “If the economy suffered a jolt of this magnitude from any other cause we would have emergency responses triggered within society, our media and government.”

He added: “Safe businesses are successful businesses that have a much greater strike rate at tender, better staff morale and better productivity – and very importantly, a better bottom line.”

Michelle Peate-Morgan, Chair of the Ireland Branch, chaired the campaign launch. She said: “Lif€ Savings aims to remind businesses that it pays to invest intelligently in health and safety. At the heart of the campaign is some of the excellent work being done here by our members in Ireland – our case studies showcase initiatives that not only improved health and safety, but also cut costs and improved efficiency and productivity. The projects have even been credited with helping to attract new business.”
