Six of Glasgow's biggest employers took part in Scotland's first Good Neighbour conference, hosted by the Health and Safety Commission and the British Safety Council on 30 November.
Scottish Power, Hewden Stuart, Glasgow City Council, First Engineering and NEC Semiconductors offered their health and safety advice to their smaller contractors, suppliers and neighbouring businesses.
The initiative was prompted by concerns over health and safety in small businesses.
"Good practice is something that should be shared rather than protected for fear of losing a competitive advantage," explained Sir Neville Purvis, director general of the British Safety Council.
"Small organisations need to understand that they need not tackle these issues on their own."
