The future role of health and safety professionals will be broader, incorporating such issues as wellbeing, health and mental health. It is likely that there will be fever health and safety professionals but their role will be more specialised, while health and safety will be embedded in professional responsibilities of managers,” says Mike Robinson, CEO of the British Safety Council, in the interview 'The Future of Health & Safety' given to Irwin and Colton.
In this interview Mike Robinson discusses issues such as: What does the future hold for the health and safety profession? What is the future for health and safety regulation? What are the British Safety Council’s plans for the future?
The British Safety Council is dedicated to making sure no-one is injured or made ill at work. The Council was founded in 1957 by James Tye, a pioneering campaigner who helped to transform the British way of life. His efforts led directly to the creation of the ground-breaking 1974 Health and Safety at Work Act, as well as the introduction of car seat belts.
