The hazards facing people in their everyday working lives are ever changing. As new processes and materials emerge new health problems develop. There is a need to continually monitor these developments, to actively campaign for safer and healthier workplaces, and to ensure improved health and safety legislation and more effective enforcement by the HSE and Local Authorities.
The Scottish Hazards Campaign was inaugurated on 1st August 1993. It is a network of individuals and organizations interested and involved in workplace health. It includes trade union branches, trade union health and safety representatives and officials, safety officers, occupational health professionals, specific campaigns, e.g. RSI and Asbestos, as well as local councilors and community groups.
