ABSTRACT
This article reports on the publication of the Annual Report and Accounts by the British Health and Safety Commission (HSC) for the year April 1, 2003 to March 31, 2004. The Report shows the progress made against published plans contained in the HSC Business Plan 2003-2004 and also provides information about how the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is managed; health and safety in HSE; output and performance measures; and legislative time-tables. A highlight of the year was the publication of HSC Strategy for workplace health and safety in Great Britain to 2010 and beyond. This was endorsed by a wide range of stakeholders and launched by the Chair and then Minister of State for Work, Des Browne MP. HSC/HSE plans for 2003/2004 continued to be centered around for program-based blocks: Priority Programmes, work in major hazard industries, securing compliance with the law and mandatory activities. Most published plans and activities in all Programme Blocks were delivered or well progressed. Copies of The Health and Safety Commission Annual Report and the Health and Safety Commission Executive Accounts 2003/2004 are available from HSE Books. The report can also be found on the website of HSE.
