Health and Safety Executive consulting on changes to reduce burden on business

Written by Paula Devine | 07 Aug 2012

The Health and Safety Executive (HSE) is currently consulting on two proposed changes:

Firstly, proposals to exempt the self-employed whose work activities pose no potential risk of harm to others, from health and safety law. The HSE is particularly keen to hear from the self-employed. The consultation document can be found here.

Secondly, proposals to Revise the Reporting of Injuries, Diseases and Dangerous Occurrences Regulations (RIDDOR). This seeks to re-examine whether RIDDOR is the best approach to providing an accurate national picture of workplace accidents. The consultation document can be found here.

If you have any thoughts please email them to info@chamber-business and use the title Health and Safety Changes.
