Our campaigns reach out to those people who are vulnerable to poorly managed health and safety, and those who can make a difference. This includes existing members of staff, those new to a job, and employers.

Central to our campaigns is people’s wellbeing and helping to ensure that no one is injured or made ill through their work. Health, safety and wellbeing has been a priority for British Safety Council for nearly sixty-five years.

Our most recent campaign, Keep Thriving, aims to help improve the wellbeing of workers, within and outside of the workplace, so that all of us can thrive. Our other key campaign Time to Breathe raises awareness of the risks of air pollution to outdoor workers.

Keep Thriving

British Safety Council launched its Keep Thriving campaign; to help improve the wellbeing of workers, within and outside of the workplace, so that all of us can thrive.

Time to Breathe

We're calling on employers, policy-makers and regulators to start taking seriously the risk of ambient air pollution to the health of outdoor workers.

Policy and research

We advocate policy positions and research and act as a platform to share insights and inform consultations.

We have published our Manifesto for 2024, ahead of the next General Election – read more here.

Future risk

The world of work is rapidly changing, as are its associated risks, whether from increasing automation, new materials, insecure job contracts or reduced regulatory resources.

Business benefits of good health and safety

We believe that it makes good business sense to invest in people and processes to improve health, safety and the environment.

Our manifesto

British Safety Council's manifesto, Working Well, outlines five steps for healthier and safer work activities.

Our impact

Thanks to our close relationships with business and 60 years of working with the Government, we're able to develop positions and inform consultations that influences health and safety policy and law.

Positions and key issues

Our policy positions set out what we believe and capture the organisation’s view on key topical issues and are developed in collaboration with members and others to ensure that they remain current.

Sector Interest Groups

We host sector interest groups (SIGs) that meet on a regular basis to discuss key issues, share views, get involved in campaigns and discuss good practice and new research.

How to contribute and get involved

Our engagement with politicians and civil society through campaigning and sector interest groups are crucial for us to influence health, safety and environmental regulations.
