Chinese delegation visits British Safety Council HQ

8 Aug

Alex Botha, chief executive of the British Safety Council, welcomed twenty senior officials from the State Administration of Work Safety of China to the organisation’s London headquarters on 4 August.  The officials, drawn from the chemicals, coal mining, metallurgical, nuclear and shipbuilding sectors including in Sichuan and Shandong, met with the British Safety Council executive team as part of their week long study tour of the UK.

The meeting provided the Work Safety Administration officials with the opportunity to hear first hand from Alex Botha and his colleagues about the work of the British Safety Council in helping keep workplaces and workers safe and healthy in the United Kingdom, the Middle East, India and the many other countries in which it operates.  The visiting state delegation were particularly interested in exploring the effectiveness of the health and safety regulatory framework and how the work of the British Safety Council assists in helping ensuring legal compliance.  Both the State Administration of Work Safety officials and the British Safety Council executive team were clear about the importance of maintaining contact, sharing knowledge and meeting again in the near future.
