The Health and Safety Inspectorate Annual report for 2011 has now been published.
The report summarises the work carried out by the Inspectorate in 2011 and provides information, sourced from claims made for Social Security benefit during 2011, on work related accidents and ill health.
Colin Myers, Director of Health and Safety, said “’Health and safety’ is a term which is often used to illustrate, amongst other issues, red tape and bureaucracy, the imposition of measures far in excess of what would seem to be needed and to
impose unnecessary constraints on individuals carrying out their work or leisure activities. The report aims to redress this view by advising of the work of the Inspectorate and providing statistical information on work related accidents and ill health in Jersey gathered through claims for Social Security benefits. It seeks to place true ‘health and safety’ in the context of being seen as an important issue for us all”.
The report is available on the States of Jersey website. Please click on the following link: http://www.gov.je/Government/Departments/SocialSecurity/HealthSafetyInspectorate/Updates/Pages/HSIAnnualReport.aspx
