Under the agreement, the British Safety Council will share its and its members’ knowledge and expertise of the systems and arrangements that lead to excellent health and safety performance. We will also help OSHAD to raise awareness of the benefits of sensible and proportionate management of health and safety risks among Abu Dhabi’s employers.
Alex Botha, chief executive of the British Safety Council, said: “The British Safety Council's vision is that no one should be injured or made ill at work, anywhere in the world, so we are delighted to be sharing our knowledge and expertise, developed over almost 60 years, on the best ways of achieving excellent health and safety performance.
“The evidence shows that taking sensible and proportionate measures to prevent workplace injuries and work-related ill health is of great social and economic value: it protects people and is good for business.
