Dear Mr. Metzger, thank you for your help. I must confess U'M having great difficulty seeing what the British Health and safety Executive might have to do with estimation of costs for the closure of a German mine. I'll guess I'll have to point out to the client that I don't know whether this is correct.

International laufen derzeit Bemühungen, die Health and Safety Executive (HSE) bei der Übertragung der Brancheninitiative „Lösemittel im Offsetdruck" auf die Druckindustrie im United Kingdom zu unterstützen.

1999 war der 25. Jahrestag der Gründung der Health and Safety Commission (HSC) und der Health and Safety Executive (HSE). Darüber hinaus sind seit der Verabschiedung des Gesetzes über Sicherheit und Gesundheitsschutz am Arbeitsplatz im Jahre von 1974 25 Jahre vergangen.

http://www.baua.de/news/archiv/pm_99/pm83_99.htm
Gemeinsam mit der britischen Health and Safety Executive (HSE) veranstaltete die Bundesanstalt für Arbeitsschutz und Arbeitsmedizin am 22. September 1999 in Dortmund einen Workshop zum Chemikalienmanagement am Arbeitsplatz. Hintergrund ist die anstehende Umsetzung der Richtlinie 98/24/EG zum Schutz von Gesundheit und Sicherheit der Beschäftigten vor der Gefährdung durch chemische Arbeitsstoffe bei der Arbeit. Sie verpflichtet den Arbeitgeber zu einer Gefährdungsbeurteilung am Arbeitsplatz, die über die notwendigen Schutz- und Vorbeugemaßnahmen entscheidet.
