Health and safety legislation is not a burden. It’s essential for every worker in the UK.

The world of work is constantly changing and there are still too many deaths, injuries and illnesses.

With the added uncertainty of an unstable political landscape, at a time when Brexit is also looming, the government needs to be reminded - now more than ever - of the importance of health and safety protections.

Too many employers (and too many politicians) continue to refer to health and safety as “red tape”, and those employers who treat it as such put their employees at risk. At Thompsons, we believe protections should be upheld and enforced and that people have a right to work in safety.

We need to make sure the new government understands this too, and not let it negotiate away workers’ rights.

Thompsons has launched Focus: on safety at work, a photography competition aimed at capturing why health and safety at work is so important.
