In 1999 we began building the Airsweb business, in a world of health and safety that is very different to the world we see today. The landscape of health and safety in the workplace has changed dramatically over the last 15 years. With people’s attitudes and laws changing. Below we’ve outlined the basics for your quick and easy consumption. A look back In 1974 the Health and Safety Commission first met and created the Health and Safety at Work Act, just 40 years ago. This paved the way for a brighter, more sustainable future of health and safety. In 1999 Airsweb was founded and began creating software to aid the improvements in health and safety through EHS management reporting software. 2000 saw the Revitalising Health and Safety strategy launched. This marked the start of a 10 year campaign to improve Britain’s health and safety. In the last 15 years over 19 major regulations and acts have been passed, aimed at improving the landscape of many areas of work in the UK ‘One death is too many’ was brought out in 2009. A report to promote positive duties on directors to reduce fatalities. In 2011 in the ‘Good Health and Safety, Good For Everyone’ report the government plans to reform Health and safety and develop sustainable solutions for the future. What’s happening now?
