EEF survey reveals unease about burgeoning H&S legislation
03 February 2011
Britain’s manufacturers are urging the UK government to redouble efforts to build an alliance with other EU member states to reduce the burden of health and safety (H&S) legislation and remove unnecessary bureaucracy. The call was made on the back of an annual H&S survey by the Engineering Employers' Federation (EEF) showing companies’ concern at proposals for yet more legislation.
In contrast, the survey revealed a strong appetite for case study guidance as the best means of improving control of key risks. The survey also rejected pressure to introduce statutory licensing of both H&S advisers and consultants. The most popular option is a tougher voluntary accreditation system for consultants which is due to be introduced shortly.
