As all Scottish Colleges will be aware, the HSE, via Scotland’s Colleges, recently sent a letter to all Scottish College Principals asking them to comment on what action they are taking to deliver on the relevant elements of the HSE’s new strategy “The Health and Safety of GB: be part of the solution”.
CHASTE agreed with the HSE and Scotland’s Colleges to evaluate the responses from individual colleges and provide a brief sector analysis. This analysis has been discussed with Scotland’s Colleges and they have forwarded it to the HSE.
The HSE will continue to work in support of the College Health and Safety Community of Practice on relevant issues for the sector.
It should also be understood that the analysis was based upon the 36 replies received from the sector and does not necessarily represent CHASTE’s understanding of the status of health and safety management within the sector.
