HSEHR employees committed to ensuring health and safety in the workplace may be interested to hear that the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) has launched a new interactive forum designed to aid in this.

The Pledge Forum has been launched as part of the Be Part Of The Solution campaign.

Over a thousand companies and individuals have already signed the pledge, which aims to boost UK health and safety and reduce the number of accidents, injuries and fatalities which occur each year.

The forum includes useful material such as case studies and toolkits to help improve standards, which may prove useful to HR teams.

Kevin Myers, deputy chief executive of the HSE, said: “If an idea about making people safer or healthier – potentially saving lives – is a good one and it can be replicated in other businesses, we should do everything we can to help that idea to spread.”

Meanwhile, the HSE recently reported that Dipak Kumar Kantial Solanki, who owns Melbourn Stores, High Street, Melbourn, was fined for failing to have compulsory insurance to protect his employees.
