Why health and safety matters
Health and safety is all about stopping workers from getting hurt or ill through work. Everyone has a right to work in places where risks to their health and safety are properly controlled. Health and safety is particularly important at hand car washes, with the use of chemicals and also the interaction employees have with customers.
In this episode, Chris Maher from the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) joins journalist Andreea Salvage to explain the powers of HSE in shutting down unsafe premises, as well as the benefits of promoting good health and safety.
