Workers on the Edge – #WorkRelatedSuicide

 

Having survived workplace bullying during traumatic bereavement, which on its own could have killed me, this campaign is very close to my heart.

If you are in the UK, please sign this “postcard”. If you are in another country, please find a similar campaign to make it mandatory to report and investigate suicides, if they are potentially work related, the same way that work related accidents are reported and investigated.

 

THE CAMPAIGN

Hazards Campaign – Worke Related Suicide

Work Related Suicide

 

What for the USA is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (Osha)
for Australia – Safe Work Australia (SWA)
für Deutschland –  BMI Bund
is for the UK the Health and Safety Executive (HSE).

Non-profit organization The Hazards Campaign via their magazine Hazards Magazine is campaigning directly to the new CEO of HSE for mandatory reporting and investigation of suicides, for potential work related links. Accidents at work have to be reported, and if serious are investigated, but suicides are not reported or investigated independently!

I write about this in regards to suicides in Pret A Manger on: Why is Pret A Manger not investigated on staff deaths?

Please support this campaign and similar campaigns in your respective countries.

I worked at Pret A Manger for almost 10 years and survived systemic workplace bullying during bereavement that involved HR, the top leadership, HQ and even the now “retired” former CEO Clive Schlee. I declined 4 settlement offers if I am silent about my ordeal. But I rather starve and speak out to help others. For an overview of important blog entries of my experience with Pret, please visit “My Ordeal with Pret A Manger”. The little arrow to the right next to each heading will lead directly to the post.
I also tell my story for the first time verbally in this >>>
podcast interview based in California, and wrote an article in the Scottish Left Review.
Thank you for reading/listening.
