Acting Together Steering Group

Acting Together is one of the six strategic themes of the strategy for the health and safety system to Help Great Britain Work Well.

Health and safety should not be a responsibility assigned to a particular individual or part of an organisation, but an integral part of everyone’s role. There needs to be much broader ownership of the issues – by the many, not just the few. This means engaging everyone who shares the responsibility for helping Great Britain work well, because they have a vital role in managing risk and preventing damage to individuals, businesses and the economy.

The newly reconstituted CONIAC is an opportunity for key stakeholders in the building, civil engineering and engineering construction industry to come together to help achieve these things, maintain the gains made in safety, and seize the opportunity to give health the same priority.  It will help keep construction workers safe and well, protect members of the public, improve the industry’s productivity, and keep business costs down.

Supporting small employers

For SMEs, managing workplace risks shouldn’t be complicated or costly. Making support available which is quick and easy for small businesses to understand, so that they can fulfil their obligations, remains a challenge for all sectors. It will also be important to identify who the key influencers are for SMEs, working with them to raise awareness levels about the peer and expert support that is out there.
