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 young people, those new to a job, and employers.
Central to our campaigns is risk education and the teaching and championing of clear risk communication that encourages safe and healthy behaviours. The health, safety and wellbeing of young people has long been a priority for the British Safety Council.
Our most recent campaign, Mates in Mind, aims to improve and promote positive mental health in construction. Our social media campaign Speak Up Stay Safe promotes safe behaviour among young people.
