Update to mapping health and safety standards in the UK waste industry

This report describes an update to a previous study on the nature of the UK waste industry and its health and safety standards.

Employment figures were updated and it is estimated that around 176,000 people are employed in waste and recycling services in the UK in 2005/06. This employment figure was combined with updated accident numbers to reveal that the overall accident rate for workers in the waste industry has been decreasing recently.

An Overview of Safety and Health for Workers in the Horse-Racing Industry

The safety and health hazards associated with the horse-racing industry, along with a lack of adequate disability and health insurance for its workers, prompted an investigation by Congress which culminated with hearings in 2005. One of the outcomes from these Congressional hearings was a letter from the Chairman and Ranking member of the Subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations of the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on Energy and Commerce to the Department of Health and Human Services Secretary, requesting assistance from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) in investigating the safety and health hazards in the horse-racing industry.
