Frontline Scotland has scooped a prize from the Work Foundation for its campaigning. The BBC Scotland current affairs programme received the award for Danger: Men at Work, an investigation into Scotland’s health and safety record, in which reporter Samantha Poling went behind the scenes to investigate dangers in the workplace.
Head of BBC Scotland’s news and current affairs, Blair Jenkins, said: “It is a great achievement for Frontline Scotland; one that is fully merited. The programme superbly exposes how Scotland has the lowest prosecution rates and the softest penalties for those who break safety laws at work.”
