The Health & Safety Elephant

In a speech today at the Policy Exchange think tank, David Cameron, is expected to say: “For every piece of health and safety legislation, we need to ask whether it fulfils a useful purpose – and if not, it must go.”

A task force headed by Lord Young will draw up plans for “tearing down the walls of bureaucracy” if the Tories win power.

Oh Hum.......Elephant in the room

The EU Health & Safety Directive was first brought into effect in 1989 by what was then called the Council of European Communities. Essentially the measure was put forth as what is termed a "framework directive." This makes it a binding commitment on the part of European Union member states, to continuously improve their workplace health and safety standards through domestic legislation in order to conform to provisions contained within the directive.
