Are Health, Safety and Sustainability Colliding?
“Is health and safety part of sustainability?” is a question I’m asked regularly; however, it is a tricky question to answer. Undoubtedly health, safety and sustainability functions have come closer and closer together, 10 years ago it was rare to hear health, safety and sustainability mentioned in the same sentence, now it is much more common. But is this trend likely to continue? Will safety and sustainability become one and the same over time? What can each function learn from the other?
