Spotlight on health and efficiency link

OIL and Gas UK’s first seminar of 2009 will focus on the link between the management of workplace health and a company’s business efficiency and performance.

The industry body’s event, which is held with Step Change in Safety, will take place on Wednesday, March 4, in the Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre.

Robert Paterson, safety issues manager with the group, said: “There is a clear link between occupational-health awareness and business efficiency. Poor management of workplace health can lead to work-related illnesses and high levels of sickness absence. This should be a real cause for concern for companies, not least because of the costs involved, the impact on service delivery and the consequences for individual staff.”
