Description:
1997 has been a very eventful year for the Authority and may turn out to be a turning point in improving workplace health and safety for Irish workers. In many ways the year was 'the best of times and the worst of times' for worker's safety. Public awareness of the importance of workplace safety has never been higher, while health-and safety professionals, trade associations and others are doing much good work in workplace safety. There is an increasing demand for information and advice from the Authority, which we are striving to meet through new services such as our information line 'Info-tel', and our Website as well as-our expanding range of publications. In European terms Ireland would now be regarded as having one of the safer workforces. On the other hand the stark fact remains that the level of workplace accidents, as estimated by the Central Statistics Office's Labour Force Survey, has not fallen and still remains unacceptably high. This accident level remains the target, which must be addressed by society in general and the Authority in particular.
