Save lives, save money – new campaign from IOSH

As the UK government’s cost-cutting measures start to bite, IOSH is launching Li£e Savings, a new campaign to remind businesses that good health and safety can actually save money.

 In a welcome ‘win win’ message for the business sector, IOSH is making it clear that smart companies investing in sound health and safety management can see a significant return on investment, in cash savings as well as a range of central business benefits.

 You only have to look at the scale of some of the savings companies have already made to see what’s possible – E.ON saved nearly £12 million in just one year with its absence management strategy, AstraZeneca saved £5 million with a new focus on rehabilitation and health promotion and British Gas has saved nearly £2 million since it began a road risk initiative a few years ago.

Spectrum Risk Management understands that good health and safety management goes to the heart of business – done well, it can not only cut costs, but improve productivity, quality, retention, motivation and reputation. It’s a long way from being an optional extra. Even a small annual investment in well being or health and safety initiatives can pay big dividends.”

IOSH has a message for government too – better health and safety management of UK plc could mean savings of up to £22 billion a year for the public purse.
