The Health and Safety Executive, the national independent watchdog for work-related health and safety, said it is already working with industry to make health and safety clearer for businesses, whilst maintaining minimum standards for workers. A spokesman said:
HSE is working to make health and safety clearer and simpler for businesses to understand and comply with, while maintaining essential protections for workers and the public. We have reduced the number of proactive inspections by a third over the last year by better targeting of those inspections on higher risk industries and poor performers.
