Occupational health compliance and good practice

As part of ORR's strategy to raise awareness on occupational health under our health programme, we will publicise recent cases where formal enforcement action has been taken to secure legal compliance. We will continue to take enforcement action in a targeted and proportionate way where health risks are not being properly controlled, in line with health and safety legislation and our enforcement policy.

Case studies that show examples of good practice in managing railway workers health are included here. If you know of other examples and would like to share these with us, please contact us.
