HSE: What social partnership means to the Tories......

On Friday the Government announced  a number of new appointments to the board of the Health and Safety Executive. The DWP did not indicate who they were representing when they made the announcement but, after a request from Hazards magazine, the HSE confirmed that two of the new appointments and one of the reappointments were employee representatives. One of the new members is Kevin Rowan who was nominated by the TUC. The other is Susan Johnson. She is not from any trade union, she is not a health and safety activist or a safety representative, she was not nominated by any union body. In fact she is a former senior manager and businesswoman. Last year she retired down from her job as Chief Executive of the Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service. Before that she was Chief Executive of Northern Business Forum, and an ex director of the food company Greggs.  Click here to read more.
