Around 300,000 workers are reaping the rewards of improved health and safety practices, thanks to their employers publicly committing to making positive changes in the workplace.

Earlier this year, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), along with unions and industry leaders asked for businesses to publicly commit in a bid to encourage broader ownership of workplace health and safety.

The response from many of Great Britain’s top businesses was so positive, with more than 100 organisations making commitments, that HSE has launched an online community dedicated to inspiring businesses to share their commitment to Helping Great Britain Work Well (https://buff.ly/2BEtGhu).

Less than a third of young people in the UK are recycling plastics, a recent study has found.

The survey, commissioned by PlasticsEurope and RECOUP, the charity and not-for-profit organisation, revealed that there is a lack of awareness about recycling amongst the 18-24 age group. The main reason they do not recycle is due to being confused and ill-informed about what types of plastics are accepted for recycling (https://buff.ly/2B7W1f3).

The mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has appointed ten new commissioners to the London Sustainable Development Commission following a formal recruitment process.

The new commissioners will serve alongside the newly appointed chairman, Ashok Sinha, and existing commissioners, to help the city meet the challenges of a rapidly growing population, rising inequality and mitigating climate change.

The sustainable development commission was established in 2002 to advise the mayor on sustainability issues including ways to improve and protect Londoners’ quality of life, now and in the future (https://buff.ly/2B8ynPo).

The number of young people studying health and safety qualifications has more than doubled in the last five years, according to the National Examination Board in Occupational Safety and Health (Nebosh).

Students are taking Nebosh health and safety qualifications instead of going to university or as complementary study to vocational routes such as apprenticeships, the examination board said.

About 90 per cent of job advertisements for safety, health and environmental roles require one or more Nebosh qualifications (https://buff.ly/2nR3j1S).

Australia will export green energy to Indonesia under plans to develop a six gigawatt solar and wind hybrid project.

A global consortium of energy companies has presented its plans to contribute significantly to Indonesia’s clean energy future by using subsea cables to reduce the country’s reliance on imported fossil fuels.

The project – if it gets the go-ahead- will be called Asian Renewable Energy Hub (AREH). It is another mega energy project and the hybrid power plant would spread across 14,000 square km in flat desert land on the north-west coast of Australia (https://buff.ly/2nSW3CC).

The Co-op has begun selling food past its best-before date in an attempt to cut waste.

The scheme has been launched at 125 Co-op stores in eastern England, with the independent retailer estimating that it will save at least 50,000 products a year from ending up the bin.

Customers will be able to buy tinned goods and dried foods from 10p. These items use best-before date labelling, which refers to quality rather than safety (https://buff.ly/2BJbtPQ).

An Indonesian company is proving there are more uses for seaweed than serving it up as a crispy starter, by incorporating it into packaging. Evoware is testing a variety of packaging applications for bioplastics made from seaweed farmed in Indonesian waters and some of the packaging is edible (https://buff.ly/2y8b18m).
