British Safety Council

Description

The British Safety Council is a registered charity with a mission to support a safer, healthier and more sustainable society. Our range of initiatives, such as free health and safety qualifications for school pupils, is supported by revenue-generating activities centred on membership, training, auditing and qualifications.

Our mission is fulfilled through provision of a wide range of services. Some of these services are revenue generating and others are non-revenue generating (charitable). The non-revenue generating services are wholly funded by our range of revenue generating services, which are broken down into three main areas;

1. Training & Qualifications

2. Membership & Information Services

3. Audits, Awards & Consultancy

All of the our revenue generating services are focussed on raising standards in safety, health & environmental (SHE) performance for customers in return for fees, which in turn fund the expansion of our non-revenue generating initiatives. This means customer benefit is two fold;

1. Your organisations SHE performance is improved at the same time as

2. Raising standards in SHE performance in the wider society by supporting the British Safety Council’s charitable initiatives


Our charitable initiatives include;

- Free entry level hazard awareness qualifications for all 14-19 year olds in full time education

- Free level 1 qualifications in health & safety at work for staff at all member organisations

- Free training for a network of 60 gap year students to go and deliver the Entry and Level 1 qualifications while on their travels

- Free Level 1 qualifications for individuals classified as NEET (Not in Education, Employment or Training)

- Free level 1 qualifications for all trainee air cadets

- A commitment of £2m of our charitable reserves to make the London 2012 games the safest ever

Our 2010 target is to expand the reach of our charitable activities to impact 110,000 people in year, and we are on course to over achieve this target.

History

The British Safety Council has actively promoted good health and safety in the workplace for 50 years. From modest beginnings, the British Safety Council has progressed to being one of the largest independent occupational health, safety and environmental organisation in Europe.

Founded in 1957 by James Tye following a debate in the House of Commons, the British Safety Council is a registered charity for education in health and safety and is committed to helping raise the standards of health, safety and environment management to the benefit of its member companies and the community at large. Membership of the British Safety Council spans industry, commerce and the public sector.

The British Safety Council is consulted by the Health and Safety Executive and as such has been instrumental in the formulation of UK legislation as it exists today.
