The Health and Safety Commission's Plans of Work set out what the Commission and the Health and Safety Executive are doing to promote health and safety at work and reduce occupational injury. The Plan for 1998–99 is expected to be published at the end of May. This Government take health and safety at work very seriously and have allocated additional funding of £4.5 million for 1998–99. This will enable the Commission to reinforce its field activity and take forward its key priorities, which will include the improvement of occupational health and cutting injury rates, particularly in the agriculture, construction and manufacturing sectors.
