4th August 2017 – Is There Too Much Safety In Society In The UK?

The UK has very successfully reduced death’s in the workplace due to poor health and safety practices.   However, has the UK gone too far at removing risk from the workplace and wider society.

Too much risk control can have negative results for business performance and more fulfilling living environment in UK.

Too often safety is used inappropriately by misguided or ill-informed safety practitioners and business leaders.   This gives Safety Management a bad name and is counterproductive in that it causes interested people to switch off.

Safety practitioners and business leaders should even consider removing risk controls at re-assessment stage if it is concluded that previous risk assessor has been overly risk averse.

The UK no longer has a severe risk of death in the workplace.   It does have poor productivity.   It needs to have more balanced risk management attitude to risk that recognises the upside of taking more risk.   It doesn’t mean a return to putting children up chimney’s.   It does require more informed risk assessment and risk management.

Our UK Safety Management Forum discussed whether good safety practices have removed too much risk

21st December 2016 – “accidents happen and not every accident can be translated into an entitlement to claim compensation…” – HHJCarr : Rhys Jablonski v Preston City Council at Blackpool County Court

Safety practitioners must proactively encourage health and wellbeing, but they must also reduce the net cost of accidents.   In the above case the accident location was property in the ownership and control of Preston City Council.   The court decided there was no legal obligation to provide soft surface play area where the accident took place.   Furthermore the element of “foreseeability” of an accident was important.   Where it isn’t foreseeable that an accident could occur then there is less obligation on property owners to upgrade safety precautions.   Furthermore warning signs : whilst on their own don’t protect property owners, they are an important part of overall legal protection of businesses and organisations in the UK.   Occupiers Liability Act 1957 can present onerous obligation on property owners but property owners need not lose all hope when someone is injured and wants compensation for their injury.

The common duty of care is a duty to take such care as in all the circumstances of the case is reasonable to see that the visitor will be reasonably safe in using the premises for the purposes for which he is invited or permitted by the occupier to be there.

If some people are determined to hurt themselves, then the court will not always back them up when they want money for injury.   The claim for compensation in this court case was rejected.
