British Health and Safety Commission (HSC) Chairman Bill Callaghan welcomed the results of two surveys which show a significant increase in the number of companies that report publicly on their health and safety performance and a small increase in the number of companies where health and safety is directed at board level. The HSC is calling on companies, workers, the public and other stakeholders to give them their views, before deciding on the next steps. The reports measure the success that HSC has had in promoting corporate responsibility and accountability for the management of health and safety. The survey covered all the FTSE 100 companies and approximately 180 large companies mainly drawn from FTSE 350, and a sample of public bodies including government departments, local authorities and National Health Service trusts.
