Health & Safety

As MPs begin the new session of Parliament in May 2012 one of the first acts was to table a Parliamentary Early Day Motion calling for the '... Government not to reduce health and safety regulations'.

The full text of the Motion states:

EDM 3 FATALITIES AND MAJOR INJURIES IN THE WORKPLACE

That this House is alarmed that the number of people killed in the workplace in the2010-11 financial year increased to 171, 24 more than in the previous 12 months; is concernedby figures published by the Health and Safety Executive that nationally more than 24,700 workers suffered a major injury between April 2010 and March 2011; and, while acknowledging that Britain has one of the lowest rates of workplace deaths in Europe, urges the Government not to reduce health and safety regulations.

Contact your local MP and ask them to support EDM 3 FATALITIES AND MAJOR INJURIES IN THE WORKPLACE.

Based on research commissioned by the TUCG, the book examines why costs have risen for all items of expenditure, ranging from housing and child care to food and transport. He makes practical proposals on how these costs can be reduced. He also delivers an uncompromising message to the leaders of all mainstream Westminster Parties: it is time to end the politics of austerity, an ideological project to cut the size of the state permanently.
