Benchmarking Healthy Workplaces
Date of Issue: Wednesday, 24 October, 2012
The current EU OSHA Healthy Workplace Campaign is focussing on the topic of “Working together for risk prevention” and IIRSM is one of the Campaign Partners. The campaign is addressing issues such as worker participation, leadership, communication and management commitment. It has just been announced that a specific programme will be established to address the topic of benchmarking. A Steering Committee has been set up to drive the initiative and IIRSM has been invited to be a member of the Committee. The Institute will be represented by Barry Holt, Director of Policy & Research and the inaugural meeting will be held in Brussels on Nov. 27th, 2012.
In addition the project manager for the current campaign is Dietmar Elsler from the EU OSHA, who is a member of the IIRSM Board of Directors.
This initiative should be of interest to all organisations as the subject of benchmarking is high on the agenda for health and safety professionals and this project will provide practical guidance on how this can be achieved effectively.
IIRSM are pleased to be able to contribute to the activities of EU OSHA whose work influences legislation and standards within the UK
