Richard Wagstaff makes an excellent point. Efforts to engage workers in health & safety will be frustrated if there is a democratic culture deficit within the organisation.

True engagement requires managers (and unions) to be humble and to hand over real authority to workers, as Landcorp has done with its Safety Forum.

This will be a challenge for the patronising, manager-knows-best culture that holds back so many businesses, but until workers are given power to define what the issue is and to own the development of solutions, much H&S engagement will remain only skin deep.
