The Health Services sector was one of those groups which came within the scope of statutory occupational health and safety legislation for the first time under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, 1989. Though this sector is dedicated to the well-being of alL the population it is a workplace arid in common with all other workplaces can impact on the health and safety of the staff who work there. This sector has both its own specific hazards and those in common with ali other workplaces. Based on the work of its Advisory Committee, the Health and Safety Authority in publishing this report - is identifying the major areas for concern in the health services sector - is prioritising areas for attention - is recommending the actions to be taken by all those responsible for occupational health and safety within this sector. The 1989 Act is based on the principle of prevention; a principle which if applied throughout the sector would not alone reduce personal suffering but would yield economic benefit through savings in costs, lost time, reduced insurance premiums etc.
