The scheme is being run by the Health and Safety Commission (HSC) and fundedby the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP). It provides funding for workers’ safety advisers (WSAs), who can helpworkers and employers identify and manage risks, draw up control measures, andprovide expert health and safety information and advice. A total of £3m has been made available over the next three years for thescheme, called the WSA Challenge Fund. Organisations or individuals can alsoapply as partnerships. Winners for this year’s funding will be announced on 9 June, with the moneybeing made available from July. “Increasing worker involvement has been shown to improve health andsafety performance and is a key part of HSC’s new strategy, but six out of 10workplaces have no form of employee involvement,” said HSC chairman, BillCallaghan. “The WSA Challenge Fund is a great opportunity to deliver the strategyand get resources into the hands of people who need it most – employers andemployees in small firms,” he added. www.hse.gov.uk/workers/involvement/wsachallenge.htm Comments are closed.
