Simpl thinking cuts accidents, says BPF

The British Plastics Federation (BPF) has released the results of its 2011 Annual Accident Survey, which was completed by 105 of its members.
Now in its 15th year, the survey, which aims to source information and statistics that will assist BPF members with health and safety issues, shows a drop in major reportable accidents.
2011 was the first year of the Simpl (Safety in Manufacturing PLastics) strategy, and the report shows better performance from Simpl members compared with reportable accidents from the plastic industry as a whole.
So far more than 50 company members have signing the Simpl pledge. These members have started to implement action plans, defining risk assessment criteria and delivery and monitory arrangements, according to the BPF.
The BPF’s annual Health & Safety seminar takes place on 20 June at BPF House, London, and will feature representatives from the HSE explaining how changes in health and safety law will affect companies.
