Description:
I am pleased to submit to you the Annual Report of the Health and Safety Authority for 1995, in accordance with Section 26 of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act, 1989. For myself and the other new members of the Board, this is our first Annual Report, and we hope over the next three years to build on the very firm foundations left to us by the previous two Boards. Welcome improvements in the economy in 1995 resulted in increased employment but unfortunately there was also an increase in the level of workplace accidents, particularly in the young age groups, contrasting with the steady improvements that had been seen in previous years. There is, however, continuing evidence that the level of workplace ill health is decreasing. There has undoubtedly been an increased awareness in health and safety issues, this is not yet being adequately reflected in improved safety measures, panicularly in times of rapid growth. Continued economic development depends on our highly skilled workers, and their skills cannot be lost by unnecessary accidents resulting from lack of adequate safety standards. In addition, as new workers are taken on there must be an appropriate level of training and suspension to ensure they rapidly acquire safety skills.
