Health and safety not up to scratch, says report

Companies are paying less attention to safety at work and the number of illegal immigrants they employ has gone up, says the health and safety authority in a report published on Thursday.

In 2010 inspectors found that 61% of companies were not complying with health and safety regulations, compared with 58% in 2009 and 56% in 2008.
They also found illegal immigrants working in 18% of the companies inspected, compared with 17% in 2009 and 16% in 2008.
