The Case for Health and Safety

10 October 2012

The TUC have put together a booklet entitled 'The case for Health and Safety' to highlight that there is still a need to be vigilant over health and safety issues even though the media seem to ridicule 'elf and safety' in the media.

With over 20,000 people dying because of their work last year, health and safety still needs to be at the top ofour agenda. The TUC booklet can be downloaded from their website

ASLEF strongly believes that health at work is as important is safety. This is emphasised in the September 2012 edition of the ASLEF journal, pages 12 and 13. Mick Whelan, ASLEF's General Secretary, said: "Following recent reports which further underline the cancer risk of diesel fumes and shift work, notably an increased risk of breast cancer to women shift workers, ASLEF calls upon its reps to take up the issue of occupational ill-health with employers in the rail industry".
