No to commercialisation of HSE: a letter from Hazards

14 October 2014

Dear all

 

Tell the incoming HSE chief executive, Dr Richard Judge,

‘our health and safety is not for sale!’

Below is a ‘Don’t pimp our watchdog!’ letter we would like you sign and send to Dr Richard Judge. The incoming Health and Safety Executive (HSE) chief executive, a member of the Institute of Directors, is due to take up his post in November and was hand-picked to ‘commercialise’ our health and safety watchdog.

If you also think this is a terrible idea, all you have to do is type your name and organisation at the bottom, and send the letter (with this explanatory note removed) to chair@hse.gsi.gov.uk

You can also print it off, sign and post it to the HSE.

Best wishes. Hilda Palmer, The Hazards Campaign

Dear Richard

 

I would like to welcome you to your new job.

 

I know when you take up the reins in November, you’ve been tasked with ‘commercialising’ the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

 

But I think the government’s workplace safety regulator should be using its legal powers, people and skills to protect us at work, not flogging its services to all comers to fill a government-imposed funding gap.

 

Please don’t pimp our watchdog. HSE should be saving lives, not selling out.

 

I would like to help you improve HSE’s lifesaving work, so feel free to get in touch.

 

Best wishes
