Health and Safety Commission:
The Ready Reckoner (Feb 2001)
The Revitalising Health and
Safety Strategy Statement stated at Action Point 1
"The Health and Safety
Commision will publish and promote a ready Reckoner
supported by case studies to drive home the business
case for better health and safety management"
It goes on to sates that
"The idea of the Ready
Reckoner is to provide employers with a straightforward
tool to facilitate assessment of the potential
financial benefits of further action to improve
health and safety management. [O]our consultation
revealed that many organisation continue to doubt
whether the 'good health and safety is good business'
message really does apply to them in hard financial
terms. The aim of the Ready Reckoner is to address
this communication failure"
