Most senior executives would increase investment in health and safety only
if forced to by the Health and Safety Executive or after a serious accident,
and would not be swayed by financial incentives, according to a recent survey
by Butterworths Tolley.
The report was based on responses among health and safety managers and
"This report highlights that senior executives must work in partnership
with the people who make a difference to accident rates – union representatives
and joint safety committees," said the TUC’s health and safety policy
adviser Owen Tudor.
