HM Government has established an Independent Review of
Health and Safety legislation. This review will consider the opportunities for reducing the burden of health
and safety legislation on UK businesses while maintaining progress made in improving health and safety
outcomes. This review - under the chairmanship of leading risk management specialist Professor Ragnar Löfstedt
- is due to make recommendations to Ministers by the end of October 2011.
The Professor and advisory panel are asking all interested parties to provide
evidence that will help inform the scope for reducing the burden of health and safety regulation on UK
businesses whilst maintaining health and safety outcomes.
Construction Industry Council members including CIAT are participating in the
Loftsedt review. CIAT members are invited to make their views known via the Institute. Please contact Francesca
Berriman, Chief Executive, by 21 July. Email email@example.com
