Health and Safety Legislation to be reviewed

Posted by Altius on May 20, 2011 10:28:21 AM

The Government has established an Independent Review of Health and Safety legislation to make proposals for simplifying the existing raft of health and safety legislation. This review - under the chairmanship of leading risk management specialist Professor Ragnar Löfstedt - is due to make recommendations to Ministers by autumn 2011.

The scope of the review will cover the 200-plus statutory instruments owned and enforced by the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) and local authorities, and also their associated Approved Codes Of Practice. However, it will not focus on the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 or any of the other 16 Acts which relate to health and safety offences, offshore safety and explosives.
