Legislation Update – Regulations to be removed
In May we advised you that the Government were conducting a review of Health and Safety regulation, specifically looking at the removal of 14 sets of H&S regulations which were considered redundant. These include Construction (Head Protection) Regulations and the Notification of Conventional Tower Crane Regulations. Consultation closed on 4th July and on 22nd August, HSE concluded that 13 of the regulations should be abolished, with a target abolition date of April 2013.
We’ll keep you updated as more information becomes available.
