World Workers Memorial Day - 28th April

Compliplus Workers Memorial Day 2019Sunday, 28th April, is world Workers Memorial Day. This is the day that we remember those who have been killed or injured in work related accidents.  We often complain about the “red tape” associated with Health & Safety but the fact is that without an adequate health and safety strategy you could be putting yourself, your staff, your business and the public at risk.

According to information from the Health & Safety Authority, in the 10 year period between 2009 and 2018, 458 people were killed in work-related accidents and thousands more badly injured. Last year alone 38 people were killed. It makes sobering reading.

Across Ireland and indeed the rest of the world on April 28th, unions, employer groups and individuals will remember those who died from workplace accidents. It’s a good time to review your own company’s health and safety policy and determine if staff training is up to date and in order. Safety Statements and Risk Assessments should also be reviewed periodically to ensure they are up to date and accurately reflect best work practices.  Health & Safety is everyone’s concern, not just the designated few. By working together, we can focus on reducing those statistics above.

At Compliplus, we work in partnership with our clients to help them achieve health & safety compliance in their business. Our main goal is to make workplaces safer through innovative solutions for organisations. Our health & safety processes are designed to complement existing structures, not create new ones. Working together we can improve your health and safety culture and refine your safety systems through our range of innovative health and safety solutions. Our monthly bulletin can also keep you up to date with health and safety news - click on the link to sign up https://compliplus.com/about/about-compliplus.
