It is a year since the Soma mine disaster in Turkey where 301 miners died. This unfortunate event is set against appalling attitudes to Health and Safety in a country where 5 workers are killed every day.
In the UK we have a better track record in reducing the fatality rate in our workplaces.
We have a lower rate than most other countries in the UK.
So - the next time you hear someone say "it's health and safety gone mad" - now you know better!
Sensible Health and Safety Management allows legal compliance, is a moral duty and also makes good business sense.
