British Safety Council calls on the government to review the impact of ‘zero hours’ contracts on health, safety and wellbeing of workers

21 December 2018

Responding to the government’s announcement of the
new legislation to upgrade workers’ rights made on 17 December 2018, and resulting
news stories, the British Safety Council urges the government to offer more protection to workers engaged on ‘zero hours’ contracts.

David Parr, Policy and Technical Services Director, said: “The British Safety Council welcomes the government’s intention to confirm basic employee protection rights for so-called ‘gig’ and agency workers. However, we consider that much more needs to be done to offer protection around the principle of ‘zero hours’ contracts and, once again, urge the government to review the potential and actual impact of such working conditions on the health, safety and wellbeing of workers involved.

“The British Safety Council’s recent report on workplace wellbeing,
Not just free fruit: wellbeing at work, clearly demonstrates that workers’ wellbeing is inextricably linked to job quality and role satisfaction.”
