About Our Site

SafeWorkers was formed to offer a unique reference point on workplace safety.

Workplace safety affects us all. It doesn't matter whether you're an employer or an employee, a self-employed trader or a director of a large company. You might even be a customer who uses a shop, or a client who visits business premises. Workplace safety matters to everyone.

Despite this, many people don't know their safety rights and responsibilities. Others may be aware of basic principles, but still need further advice and help.

This lack of knowledge isn't surprising. The topics related to workplace safety cover such a wide range. Yet they crop up in every workplace in the UK, and include matters as diverse as bullying, computer use, work-related stress, and disability.

Until now, however, it hasn't been easy to find easy to read, high quality information about workplace safety. But with the SafeWorkers website, we're providing everything you need to address your interest and concerns.

You can read more than 150 of the articles they've produced on specialist workplace safety issues. You can also ask them a question and receive a reply published on the site.

SafeWorkers is here to serve your needs. Use it now for practical, first class help.

Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.

Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.

Our Background

SafeWorkers was founded by John Rowlinson, the founder of PtS.

John, through PtS, is involved in a number of ventures including software and property companies. A percentage of revenue from these activities goes towards funding SafeWorkers and a number of similar sites.

Our focus is simply on having experts create the highest quality information possible that is widely read.
