Health and safety can aid rail industry cost-cutting

Posted in: Public Transport Road Traffic Accidents Workplace Injuries 

Concerns have been raised that rail industry cost-cutting measures, combined with negative perceptions of health and safety, could jeopardise rail worker protection.

The Institution of Occupational Safety and Health (IOSH) has called upon Government and businesses in the sector to recognise the vital money savings that good health and safety management can bring, through reducing personal injuries and ill-health.

Martin Leeks, IOSH Railway Group chair, urged the railway industry to build upon improvements in occupational health and safety, as a way of cutting costs by reducing lost-time and improving efficiency.

He said: “People perceive health and safety as a cost, rather than a route to better business. In fact, this couldn’t be further from the truth – health and safety is one of the cornerstones of a thriving economy and we believe we can find many of those cost improvements through it.
