SGS finds private sector has better health and safety
24 July 2018
RESEARCH CONDUCTED on behalf of SGS reveals that the UK’s public sector organisations are falling well behind their private sector counterparts when it comes to health and safety.
The survey found that the UK’s public sector trails the private sector when to comes to prioritising health and safety; giving health and safety time and attention; adopting systems or embracing best practice.
In some areas of health and safety practice the gulf between the public and private sector is considerable and provides cause for concern given the increasing importance that organisations must place on ensuring staff are able to work in a safe environment.
The survey questioned 289 individuals from 263 unique organisations around the UK about their attitudes towards health and safety.
