    Health and Safety Legislation Change to Focus Attention on High Risk Industries

    From April 2013, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) will cease automatic inspections of businesses considered to be “low risk,” such as shops and offices. The end of these routine inspections comes as part of an overall government plan to “cut red tape” for business. 

    The number of inspections by the HSE is expected to be reduced from 33,000 to 22,000 a year. Inspections will be concentrated on the areas of industry which carry the greatest risk to staff, contractors, customers...

    HSE Changes: Cutting Red Tape or Reducing Protections

    From April 2013 onwards, the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) are planning to bring in new rules regarding which businesses they will continue to do proactive inspections on.

    These businesses, which are considered by the HSE to be low-risk, will only be subject to inspections if an incident is reported or a...

    “Elf 'n' Safety” Myths Debunked by the Health and Safety Executive

    If certain national newspapers are to be believed, health and safety laws exist solely to spoil the fun of school children, to put ridiculous restrictions on public events and to prevent bosses from making a profit due to the endless, and excessive, limitations that these laws impose on us. Whether it is football in schools, chairs in Cathedrals or firefighters wading into ponds, 'safety chiefs' are apparently responsible for banning anything and everything on spurious “elf 'n' safety” grounds.

    So is...
