HSE launches new web resource to combat Occupational Disease
HSE has launched a new website to help organisations prevent work-related illnesses.
Occupational disease is a big problem: in 2011/12 there were an estimated 1.1 million working people suffering from a work-related illness, with around 450,000 new cases of work-related ill health. An estimated 12,000 deaths each year are caused by past exposures to harmful substances at work.
The focus of the new HSE campaign will be on two key priority areas:
Thehe agency that records all land and property information in England and Wales, the Land Registry, could be sold off as part of the government’s efforts to raise funds from selling state assets.
The Land Registry has recorded property data since 1862. It the most comprehensive source of information property prices. Its data is closely monitored by economists and its information on sale prices are used by online property portals.
The Federation of Small Business has called for energy companies to provide better information for small businesses.
Last year the Government to forced the big utility companies to make their energy tariffs more transparent for householders. Now the Federation of Small Business (FSB) wants the same rules to apply to businesses.
