Lloyd's Register Foundation are pleased to announce the launch of our new podcast series, The Global Safety Podcast.
We face colossal challenges today; challenges that threaten the lives of millions of people. Each day, 6,300 people die in workplace accidents. 420,000 people die people a year from foodborne diseases. Many of these deaths are avoidable.
The Global Safety Podcast investigates the biggest safety issues facing the planet and looks at the latest science and innovations being developed to safeguard our future in an unpredictable world. How can we feed a growing population, whilst still ensuring that food is safe to eat? And how can we keep people safe with more and more robots in the workplace and driverless cars soon to become a reality?
The series will be presented by Tom Heap, Rural Affairs correspondent for BBC News, best known for his contributions to Countryfile, Panorama and BBC Radio 4.

- Tim Slingsby - Director of Skills and Education for Lloyd's Register Foundation
