Healthy, Safe and Productive Lives
The Authority delivered on a challenging and very broad work programme in 2012. Our very extensive remit across all economic sectors, spanning over 200 acts, regulations and conventions, means that the Authority had a significant impact on many Irish workplaces, workers and the general public throughout 2012.
The Health and Safety Authority’s annual Summary of Statistics presents the most frequently sought information and statistics on occupational injury, illness and workplace fatalities in Ireland. Data from different sources is brought together so that readers can review and monitor trends across a range of factors related to workplace injury and illness, including the characteristics of the victim, the incident and the work environment.
This is the third Strategy prepared by the Authority under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005. It outlines our mandate, mission, vision, strategic outcomes and priorities up to the end of 2015 and will set the overall direction for the Authority’s activities during this time.
This is the first Programme of Work prepared as part of our new strategy for the period 2013 to 2015. Our vision is a country where worker safety, health and welfare and the safe management of chemicals are central to successful enterprise. This Programme of Work is designed to move us closer to achieving our vision.
The Annual Report 2011 included some unaudited financial information drawn from the draft Financial Statements approved by the Board. This document contains the audited Financial Statements together with the report received from the Office of the Comptroller and Audit General and supersedes the information in the Annual Report.
