Aim for the best ever Safe and Healthy year in 2015 in your organisation!
Sheila Pantry OBE
May we wish everyone, wherever you are in the World, a safe, healthy and happy and successful 2015!
Many people returning to work after the festivities will, no doubt, be making plans to improve the standards of health and safety in their workplace. It is important that the practices and systems in the workplace are constantly reviewed and if necessary, improved. The start of a New Year is a good time to do this review that may also indicate training requirements and updates and re-thinking how systems and services can be improved.
OSHWORLD – Get your 2015 Diary off to a cracking start
This is where OSHWORLD can help you. Look at the latest additions to the Diary of Events and you will see plans have been made already worldwide in 2015 to have training courses, symposiums and conferences in many places in the world on a wide range of subjects. Recessions should not stop training.
Remember that even if you cannot attend these many events, speakers and organisers are often willing to share their knowledge. Look at the details – where possible, we add in the web sites of these events so you can request further information. And please do let me know if you are organising any OSHE events so that I can add them to the Diary.
January 2015 OSHWORLD FOCUS is entitled UK HSE calls for New Year resolution on health and safety blame game in which the UK Health and Safety Executive wants businesses that provide customer service to turn over a new leaf and stop blaming health and safety for poor or over-the-top decisions.
Another area to watch is to ensure that you are up-to-date in your wider health and safety information knowledge. Remember ignorance of the law and its requirements is NO excuse. So do you want to keep up-to-date in worldwide occupational health, safety, hygiene, road safety, water safety, environment trends and the latest information? Do budget constraints not allow you to buy all the journals, newsletters and documents that contain the latest information? Can’t afford the time to search for the latest information, legislation and standards? No staff to search for this information? And no time yourself to spend hours searching for information?
