Too many regulations?

20 May

Good afternoon British Safety Council members, and others. Today, the Department for Work and Pensions issued a call for evidence for the Löfstedt Review, inviting views from all interested parties on the scope for reducing the burden of health and safety regulation on UK businesses. Announced by the Minister for Employment in March, the Löfstedt Review will consider the opportunity for combining, simplifying or reducing the approximately 200 health and safety regulations in this country.

The British Safety Council will be submitting evidence to the review, but first we want to know what our members feel. Next month we will launch an online survey and this is your opportunity to tell us what you think. These findings will support the evidence which we present to Professor Löfstedt.

The call for evidence is available at: http://www.dwp.gov.uk/consultations/2011/lofstedt-review-cfe.shtml

All UK members will receive an email invitation in June so look out for this important opportunity…
