Risks from rubber crumb sports pitches, innovative traffic calming, danger of high-heeled shoes
In recent years, society’s awareness of Health and safety management has grown, with huge improvements achieved in occupational health and wellbeing. However, in this edition of Riskex News Review, we reveal the alarming results of a study where the risks of rubber crumb sports pitches – affecting children and adults as sports players, as well as maintenance and installation staff – may be causing health problems from the rubber material.
This film also introduces an innovative traffic calming idea, and there is a discussion about employers’ obligations for safeguarding employees’ health around the dangers of wearing high heeled shoes.
Riskex has teamed up with @SHPOnlineand a panel of our clients to host a webinar that will explore how technology is becoming increasingly important in managing Risk. Join us on 17th November for what promises to be an insightful event! Register here: https://www.shponline.co.uk/resources/aligning-technology-with-emerging-health-and-safety-risks/?cid=EXTTwitter
