Our campaigns reach out to those vulnerable to poorly managed health and safety and those who can make a difference - this includes young people and those who are new to a job, as well as employers.
Central to our campaigns is risk education and clear communication to encourage safe behaviour.
Time to Talk Day - 4 February 2016
4 February is Time to Talk Day, which aims to get people talking about mental health and help end the misconceptions around it. To help you take part you can download our free poster, which encourages workers to talk about any stress they may be suffering and aims to help end stigma around mental health problems. The poster is available for free download until the end of February.

The business benefits of good health and safety
We believe that it makes good business sense to manage health and safety as part of your business processes. And the evidence is there to demonstrate that the benefits associated are both financial and non-financial.
Business Benefits Report
Literature review on the evidence of good health and safety management
This report, published in 2014, analyases evidence published over the last twenty years that assesses the impact of interventions to improve occupational safety and health (OSH).
The report presents evidence on:
- the costs of health and safety failure (both in the UK and Europe)
- the main benefits associated with such an investment (such as reduced sickness absence, improvements to both staff morale and an organisation’s reputation)
- the argument that the benefits outweigh the costs of investing in OSH.
Watch our video with an expert from the European Agency of Safety and Health at Work (EU-OSHA) explain their findings from Germany which demonstrates how an insurance points system can generate a return on investment of 5:1.
