Campaigns and policy

Ensuring that no-one is injured or made through their work is a joint effort. We continually engage and work with members and others to protect people and enable businesses to thrive, whether promoting awareness raising campaigns; advocating policy positions and research or acting as a platform to share insights and inform consultations.


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 the 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.
