Technical Officer’s Report – JULY 2013

LEGISLATION REVIEW

In 2012 a report ‘Reclaiming Health & Safety’ was published. The Report was the result of the consultation carried out under Professor Lofstedt on aspects of Health & Safety Law and

The consultation was intended to discover any incidents of duplication of legal duties, any gold plating of European Directives,and examples of over zealous enforcement.
