The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) launched a new occupational awareness campaign at their first annual conference on 18 September.

“Go Home Healthy” is aimed at a wide audience, from employers, managers and employees, to industry sector bodies, and aims to spread an overarching message that leads to specific guidance and information on the HSE's three priority areas:

  • occupational lung disease;
  • musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs); and
  • work-related stress.

The campaign centres on a website that links to videos and case studies on the three focal themes. The title “Go Home Healthy” is said to represent  the overall goal and “promise” rather than simply encouraging workers to consider their own health risks. There's also a sub-theme, which urges employers to “shine a light” on the hazards in their organisations, and to “do the right thing”, expressed by the Twitter hashtag #workright.
