British Safety Council CEO Mike Robinson, in conversation

The latest in series of Safety Bytes videos features British Safety Council CEO, Mike Robinson.

In the video, Mike Robinson discusses:

  • Why has the British Safety Council decided to launch in India?
  • How will it have an impact on health & safety in India, a country of 1.3bn people?
  • What impact has the Rana Plaza disaster had on health and safety in the Indian sub-continent?

Celebrating their 60th anniversary, the British Safety Council is dedicated to making sure no-one is injured or made ill at work.

The Council was founded in 1957 by James Tye, who was a pioneering campaigner who helped to transform the British way of life.

His efforts led directly to the ground-breaking 1974 Health and Safety at Work Act, as well as the introduction of car seat belts.
