Health and Safety - Fact not Myth
Many myths have appeared in the media about health and safety over the past few years. All of them have been gross distortions of the truth. Health & Safety is not about stopping work or activities, it is about taking a sensible approach to the management of risk. Health & Safety law sets only minimum standards. The best organisations aim higher.
If you want to know the truth about many of the media stories please see the Health & Safety Executive (HSE) web pages.
