The Health and Safety Commission (HSC) reiterated its strong support for worker involvement for the health and safety system at their public meeting on 15 March.
HSC Chair Bill Callaghan said:
“A fully involved and consulted workforce is a major contribution to achieving a healthier, safer workplace. All workers have a right to work in places where all risks to their health and safety are properly controlled. We have made good progress in promoting worker involvement but not enough employers properly involve and consult their staff on health and safety. Equally, not enough workers feel able to come forward and take on health and safety responsibilities.”
