Health and Safety Training for Managers | In the UK, managing health and safety is not fashionable. Safety managers have a reputation for over zealous interpretation of rules which can often be frustrating and inefficient.
But, the UK is one of the safest workplaces in the world to work, with an accident fatality rate of 0.45 per 100,000. The global average is around 11 per 100,000.
So, in terms of accident management at least, safety managers in the UK are doing something right. In large part this is due to effective legislation, training and the common sense approach of the UK Health & Safety Executive.
