New Health Service Website

A new and developing source of sector relevant guidance on health and safety
has been launched for the Health Services in England, Wales and Scotland. This
meets a demand for advice and guidance for employers, safety representatives,
health professionals and members of the public. Some of the main occupations
such as nurses and ambulance crews have extremely high rates of accidents and
sickness absence resulting from: manual handling (mainly of patients); slips
and trips; violence; and stress.

Site visitors can view video clips, read case studies, download the 2003/4
programme of work and gain access to guidance on many of the current issues and
valuable links to many other useful websites.
HSE would like to involve all parts of the industry and the public in further
developing the pages over the coming months.
