This week Craig speaks to Kathy Jenkins Secretary of Scottish Hazards - A charity committed to improving workplace H&S, H&S officer of her Unite not for profit branch which organisers social care workers. She is also a member of Common Weal's Social Care Reform Working Group which is currently working on a comprehensive blueprint for a Scottish National Care Service.

Kathy talks about her latest policy paper for Common Weal on health and safety in the social care sector - both how it has been affected by the pandemic and the systemic issues that impacted the health and safety of social care workers before the pandemic struck.
