Government response to Suspension Trauma petition

This is the governments’ response to the Suspension Trauma petition by the local CWU BT branch. I have asked for their comments on the government’s response and will post them as soon as I receive them.

“The Government, through the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), has commissioned research into the first aid treatment of those suffering from suspension trauma resulting from a fall from height, as differing medical treatments have been advocated. A workshop is to be held on 30 April to consider the results of the research, to which the petitioner has been invited.

Following the workshop, HSE will consider the development of proposals both on the correct medical advice to treat those suffering from suspension trauma and the most appropriate way to disseminate any subsequent medical advice, taking account of the petitioner’s suggestion.”
