Campaigns and policy

Ensuring that no-one is injured or made ill at 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 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.
