The Löfstedt review of health and safety legislation : British Safety Council members speak up

17 Jun

The British Safety Council commenced a consultation exercise with our members earlier this week on the questions posed by the Löfstedt review of health and safety legislation. Over 200 members have already accessed the questionnaire in which we seek their views on the potential for regulations to be merged or simplified and on their impact and effect. It is clear from early responses that there is considerable support for the contribution that our current regulations and supporting ACOPs have had in improving health and safety and believe that reform is not necessary. Almost half of respondents considered that there were regulations that could be simplified.  Half of respondents consider that the benefit of health and safety regulations outweigh the burden while one in four held the opposite view.

There are still two weeks remaining for members to let us have their views which will form an integral part of our submission of evidence to Professor Löfstedt  – the survey can be accessed at
