BI’s Article search uses Boolean search capabilities. If you are not familiar with these principles, here are some quick tips.

To search specifically for more than one word, put the search term in quotation marks. For example, “workers compensation”. This will limit your search to that combination of words.

To search for a combination of terms, use quotations and the & symbol. For example, “hurricane” & “loss”.

Merged HSC HSE to focus on risk management


LONDON— The merger between the Health and Safety Commission and the Health and Safety Executive will be committed to promoting risk management and transparent decision-making, the organizations said.

The HSC is the government body responsible for health and safety regulation in Great Britain. The HSE along with local government bodies are the enforcing authorities who work in support of the Commission.

The HSC has announced that it is progressing to the next stage of its consultation process on the merger with the HSE. The idea behind the merger is to improve the Commission's governance arrangements, it said.

"Merging the Commission and the Executive into a single body will give us a more robust governance framework, improve our working practices and create a stronger voice for health and safety," said Bill Callaghan, HSC chair.

The unified governing body will operate as the Health and Safety Executive and transparent decision-making and risk management is one of its stated aims. Other aims include the provision of clarity in the roles and working relationships between the governing body, its executive arm and ministers, and consideration of key stakeholders.
