Health and safety news: we need to do more says Hackitt

Health and safety news: Judith Hackitt, chair of the health and safety executive, has urged businesses to process better onsite safety in a bid to improve safety standards across the major high hazard industries.

“A great deal of progress has been made,” said Ms Hackitt, addressing delegates at The Process Safety Management Summit II on January 21st.

Even so, many businesses still refused to “recognise that process safety is part of what they do”, she added.

“I still find it hard to believe that people in warehousing and storage of dangerous substances try to argue the case that process safety does not apply to them.”

Ms Hackitt said the time had come for business leaders “to do something”.
